The Confederation of Zimbabwe Retailers has blamed the growth of the black market for foreign currency for fuelling the current wave of increases in prices of basic commodities. Over the past few days, prices of most consumables have been sky-rocketing, leaving consumers in a lurch. The shortage of foreign currencies in the formal banking channels is forcing most retailers and manufacturers to source from the black market at a premium in order to continue importing goods.
