#Nimrod Zimbudzana on Jan 14, 2015 :
Hi,

The pricing list on most items for the Harare is overstated. I will collect real prices on some items which I do not know offhand then submit them to you. Zimbabwe has become one of the cheapest cities, in terms of cost of living ever since the introduction of the multi-currency regime in February 2009.The only problem is high unemployment rate which came about as a result of closure of many companies.

Most citizens have either migrated, ventured into the informal sector or unemployed.

I hope this information will be usefull.

Regards

completely unreliable. zimb's gdp is roughly $586, how ever did it balloon to 500 per month per person?
