Zimbabwe’s Inflation Rate Fell to 3.6% in October


    The costs of medicines, rent, utilities and alcoholic beverages have fallen over the last 12 months, helping to reduce the inflation rate, Nyoni said in a telephone interview today from Harare, the capital.

    Month-on-month inflation increased to 0.2 percent from 0.1 percent because of a stronger rand in neighboring South Africa, the main source of Zimbabwean imports, Nyoni said.
