From John Robertson

Annual inflation went down to 2,67% in March from 3,04% in February, according to the latest Consumer Price Index table from Zimstat. However, the monthly rate went up from 0,49% in February to 0,75% in March. The biggest monthly increases were recorded by Education at 3,57%, Transport at 2,5% and Restaurant & Hotels at 1,44%. Of the annual increases, the biggest was for Transport at 8,44% and Education at 4,9%. The education figures do not include school fees, the line for which has been left blank ever since the rebased index was re-launched with the base set at December 2008 = 100.
