“As a result, A 50 kilogram bag of bread flour which was at around 36 000 Kwacha, is now at 48 000 Kwacha,” said one of the managers.

Executive Director for the Consumers Association of Malawi (CAMA), John Kapito, has since asked government to intervene on the pricing matter , saying Malawians will suffer.

Malawi is one of the few African countries which depends on Russian wheat for bread making.
Russia has been hit by Western sanctions for invading Ukraine.

Malawians have taken up in various social media platforms to ask the government to intervene swiftly before this gets out of hand.
