The unrest in KZN has seen the price of some food supplies skyrocket.
This was according to Msunduzi municipality councillors who told Weekend Witness they had been inundated with complaints from residents about price-gouging in relation to food.
The councillors said residents were struggling to keep up with prices since the unrest. Durban-based Pastor Hugo Claassens of the Ignite Revival Fire outreach ministry said they had also received complaints around the spike in food prices since the unrest. Claassens said some of the people the ministry feed said they were unable to keep up with the price of eggs and potatoes. According to Claassens, people had bought a packet of potatoes for R200 while 30 eggs were being sold for R100-R110.
