Zimbabwe's chief statistician stated 27 November that it is impossible to work out the country's latest inflation rate because of the lack of goods in shops. September 2007's inflation rate was put at almost 8,000 per cent, the world's highest. Other reports suggest the rate could be at near 15,000 per cent while the International Monetary Fund has warned it could reach 100,000 per cent by the end of the year. EPA/BISHOP ASARE
