Mealie Meal prices are set to go up again after the government failed to honour its promise to subsidize the staple. Just a week after saying that they would pay the millers upfront with the cost of the subsidy, the government has failed to honour its word. 

According to iHarare, the Grain Millers Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) have since written to the government warning that unless they receive the subsidy by end of day Thursday, then the price of mealie meal is going to skyrocket.

In a letter to Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube, the Grain Millers Association of Zimbabwe  chairperson Tafadzwa Musarara wrote,

 

 

Mealie meal is currently going for $50  per 10-kilogram packet following President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s directive that the government would subside the prices. 

 This came after Mthuli Ncube had removed the subsidies which resulted in the prices doubling to an average of $100 per 10-kilogram packet.
