Bread Disappears From Shop Shelves, Again

Zimbabwe is experiencing bread shortages for the umpteenth time this year. In the past, the scarcity was blamed on flour shortages as the country has become a net importer of wheat over the past two decades.

Online vendors, Fresh In A Box (FIAB) apologised to their customers for failing to deliver bread. FIAB said in a statement:

We could not find any bread delivery trucks to chase and our supplier just isn’t delivering. So if you ordered Bread from us, please bear with us and we will make sure we deliver when it becomes available. Sorry guys. Zim happens…

Bread now costs ZWL$9.50 per loaf on the formal market with some street vendors selling it for ZWL$7.50 but strictly on cash.

There are reports that bakers are seeking to hike the price of bread to ZWL$14.00 in order to factor costs driven by things like fuel and electricity.

  1. President Mnangagwa has failed, thats in black and white its for all everyone to see. If only God could soften his heart and he leaves the post with his corrupt Zanu party and let Zimbabweans be happy people again.

  2. Bring back the ‘whitey’ who will correct everything. Black people in Africa have never done one thing right except steal. You only have yourselves to blame.
