President Emmerson Mnangagwa has accused  businesses who  increased prices owing to the current economic challenges as inhumane and unpatriotic.
Mnangagwa said this while addressing thousands of people who were gathered at the National Sports Stadium for the country’s annual independence celebrations.
“Government is alarmed by the recent wanton and indiscriminant increases of prices which has brought about untold suffering to the people. 
“This conduct by stakeholders in business, industry and commerce is inhumane, unethical, unpatriotic and goes against the grain of economic dialogue which the 2nd Republic has espoused,” President Mnangagwa said.
Mnangagwa said government would restore the purchasing power of workers.
“Government remains determined to restore the purchasing power of all workers,” he said.
This comes after prices of basic commodities went up by more than 300 percent with bread now costing $3.50 from $0.90 when President Mnangagwa came into power.
The recent price  increases comes as civil servants had been given a pay rise.
