I was in Zim last year and bread costs like 10USD.

Hehehe I feel bad for you. Even the yummy Cerevita is $1,50USD in ZWE. But look at the price in other countries hehehehe! We may have it bad right now but stop your lies.
In her defence, Nepembe in another tweet said that she had been told by Zimbabweans that bread was 10USD when she visited the country. She said:
My tweet about bread being 10USD is getting quite hectic by the comment sections. If when I was in Zim and people that live in Zim are telling me bread is 10USD should I not believe them??
