Zambia's January inflation quickens to 21.8 pct year/year


LUSAKA (Reuters) – Zambia’s inflation rate accelerated to 21.8 percent year-on-year in January from 21.1 percent in December, the Central Statistical Office said on Thursday.

“This was due to increases in the prices of food and non-food items,” Central Statistical Office director John Kalumbi said.

Monthly inflation slowed, falling to 1.3 percent in January from 2.1 percent in the previous month, the agency said.
