From Fuel to Sugar Queues

Hundreds of people in Zomba city, eastern Malawi, are queuing to buy sugar at Shoprite Stores where a one kilogram packet is selling at K215 while elsewhere it is going at K550.

However, Shoprite is rationing the sales to two packets per buyer.

Malawi is experiencing shortage of sugar for a month as result of a fault developed on the manufacturing plant at Dwangwa in Nkhotakota.

Illovo Company, manufacturers of the commodity, have since disputed reports that the scarcity is due to forex shortage.  - Zodiak Online

Monga ine one of the prophets of today. The next thing to disappear on the market will be cooking oil, then salt should get prepared.

What about start using honey instead of sugar my dear Malawian Fellows? Is much healthier and highly available in the country. You may also consider to reduce the amount of sugar you utilize is not good for you. It may cause diabetes, obesity and other diseases. It is true that honey is more expensive but then you use just a spoon in a glass of tea or milk and then you live longer....and you have more time in your day..instead of queuing all day.
