The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) confirmed in its monthly report, the nation’s fifth consecutive month of disinflation, with the Consumer Price Index (CPI), which measures inflation settling at 17.01% year-on-year in August 2021 vs 17.38% recorded in July 2021. The Food and Core sub indices both grew at slower rates in the month, settling at 20.30% and 13.41% year-on-year in August 2021 from 21.03% and 13.72% respectively, in July 2021. This is attributable to the persistent decrease in food prices.

We expect continued disinflation in the near term, due to the high base-effect of last year.
