Tough times! Bread, sugar and cooking oil prices up in Malawi

Prices of basic commodities including that of bread, sugar and cooking oil continue to go up in the country.

Cost of living in Malawi

A snap survey by Nyasa Times show that a packet of sugar has gone up to K900 from K800 whilst the prices of bread and cooking oil have gone up by an average of 30 per cent.

This comes against the backdrop of the reduction of inflation from 24 per cent to 16 per cent. Consumers Association executive director John Kapito has since warned people to budget and window shop before buying commodities in view of the rise in prices.

“It is very unfortunate that prices of basic commodities are going up when inflation is going down. This is an annoying situation,” he said.

The price rises in Malawi are affected by demand and supply.

    The items mentioned: Bread,Sugar and Cooking Oil,are necessities to human life,every living creatures need to eat,but the Malawi Government led by Peter Muthalika maintains that only a handful of his tribesmen and henchmen deserve to live well and eat well,what a crime against humanity? Afterall,both the Muthalikas,have very little concern on overwhelming poor Malawians to them,they had come to Malawi to amass wealth and enjoy the highest standard of life,while the owners of the country are gnashing their teeth.Look at our hospitals,there are no drugs,power and water are scarcely reaching the low income citizens and a lot hell of human needs.To some extent,it is our own fault in the sense that we give the so-called leaders a green light to do whatever they want to do.Look at our brothers and sisters of South Africa the way they protest against Zuma’s corrupt leadership and it would be a miracle if the womaniser President would stick on his Presidency for long now.Malawians stand for your rights,you have nothing to loose but,degradations and sufferings in you own beloved motherland Malawi.ALUTA CONTINUA!!!!!!!
