Mozambique scraps bread price hikes

MAPUTO: Mozambique will reverse an increase in the price of bread that sparked deadly rioting last week, and restore some subsidies for electricity and water, the planning minister said on Tuesday (7 September 2010).

After an emergency cabinet meeting, planning minister Aiuba Cuereneia read out a statement saying government would "maintain the previous price of bread through the introduction of a subsidy."

Cabinet also agreed to scale back an increase in the electricity prices charged to most consumers, and will also withdraw increases in water prices, he added.

The price hikes kicked off three days of rioting last week that left 13 dead and about 400 injured, with 286 people arrested, according to government.
