  1. Ko what were the prices before this? Is it up by 10%, 100% or 1000%? Please when you do articles include that for context because this may be either inflation adjusted in line with ZWL devaluation, or it might be extremely out of line in which case then its news worthy, either because it was previously too low, or because it has now gone too high.
