Shortage of currency in Malawi

A shortage of foreign currency in Malawi is beginning to undermine the fixedexchange rate policy that has been in place for more than two years.The kwacha has weakened slightly against the dollar. On the black market, the currency is trading at 190.

The shortage of foreign currency means Telekom Networks Malawi, the country’s second largest mobile phone operator, has halted expansion of its network because it was unable to import equipment.
