NEWSROOM (ADV) – KFC Africa has taken the decision to temporarily shut its restaurants in the country due to unreasonable arguments.

According to the company, the fast food outlets “are unable to continue to trade due to the current pressure on the country’s economy. The currency challenges have affected our operations and supply and we are exploring various ways to reopen our restaurants soon”.

“We generate new employment opportunities as we grow and with every new restaurant opening. Our supply chain is heavily dependent on local suppliers and we are passionate about ensuring that these and all other partnerships are sustainable,” the company said.

In recent days a number of stores have been forced to close their doors after essentials such as medicine and water start running out. Long queues for petrol, bread, and other essentials have once again become a familiar sight on the streets of most Zimbabwe cities.

President Emerson Mnangagwa’s government has introduced a stabilization programme, which is meant to help the economy recover after years of hardship while Robert Mugabe was in power.
