Finance minister Mthuli Ncube, on Aug. 1, suspended the publication of annual inflation figures until February 2020 to avoid miscalculation of the country’s inflation.

He said the suspension was done due to the changes in functional currency from the U.S. dollar to Zimbabwe dollar in June.

In June, Zimbabwe’s annual inflation rose to 175.66 per cent, the highest in a decade. (NAN)
