Stanno vivendo una crescita stentata e malnutrizione. È molto triste per le madri che allattano e i loro bambini in quanto non ricevono un’alimentazione adeguata a causa della fame”. Inoltre, un altro residente di Harare ha detto: “Anche quando ricevo un pasto mealie, non riesco a cucinarlo a causa dell’elettricità che non c’è per 16 ore al giorno.

Zimbabwe duty situation

Zimbabwe Government has Removed Duty on Basic Commodities DW-ZIMBABWE. Zimbabwe Government has removed import duty on wheat flour and maize.

Zimbabwean Butcheries Are Using Mortuary Chemicals on Meat

A number of cases have been reported about Zimbabwean meat retailers who are using embalming chemicals to preserve meat. Investigations were carried out last week, and it was revealed that those unscrupulous retailers use mortuary chemicals to keep their products fresh and enticing. According to the investigations, they put a small amount of chemical so that the meat won’t dry, as embalming fluid can dry the meat when they use a large amount. So they just want to keep the meat fresh and reddish in color. Most butcheries admitted that they use those chemicals because of electricity that cuts off for about 4 to 15 hours per day.  And thus the results of the collapsed economy in Zimbabwe that makes most businesses to do illegal things to survive. However, what the retailers do is to kill the society. They’re only concerned with profits and don’t care about the health of consumers.
