Mugabe orders price cuts

The people of Zimbabwe having not yet suffered enough, Mugabe has decided to empty the store shelves:

In a bid to cement voters’ loyalty, Mr Mugabe has ordered price cuts of up to 90 per cent in some areas. Truckloads of scarce goods are being sent from Harare to so-called People’s Shops, which were inaugurated by Mr Mugabe during his campaign. These will be forced to sell bottles of cooking oil at Z$1 billion, or about 6p, according to the official Herald daily. Normally, a bottle costs Z$16 billion (£1).
