Consumers Welcome Opening Of Borders For Foreign Commodities

The Consumer Council of Zimbabwe has welcomed the amendment of SI122 saying it allows ordinary people to access affordable goods from neighbouring countries.

BASIC COMMODITIES #THEGOODNEWS

CCZ executive director, Ms Rosemary Siyachitema said they had advocated for the opening of the borders so that consumers could get goods that were in short supply.

“We advocated for the opening of the borders after the challenge of empty shelves and high prices for basics commodities.

People could no longer afford basics such as cooking oil. Through the opening of the borders, prices can go down because of competition,” said Ms Siyachitema.

“Christmas is around the corner so we hope this temporary measure will improve food supplies. People do not want to be stressed with high prices or food shortages during the festive season,” she said.

Ms Siyachitema said the reprieve will allow Government to look into the real causes of the current shortages.
