Zimbabwe’s record-breaking annual inflation, has been viewed as one of the indicators of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s economic policy failure.

The inflation remains unsustainably high at 393% for October, United States currency and inflation expert Professor Steve Hanke says.

However, officially as reported by the Zimbabwe Statistics Agency it is 268.8%.

Meanwhile, neighbouring Zambia’s annual inflation eased to a four-month low of 9.7% in October of 2022 from 9.9% in the previous month.

Zambia’s economic progress has become the talk of the continent today.

Apparently, more focus is on how the Zambian kwacha is now the world’s best performing currency.
