Djibouti August inflation falls to 4.6 pct year/year

NAIROBI (Reuters) – Consumer prices in Djibouti rose 4.6 percent on the year in August, slowing from 5.0 percent annual inflation a month earlier, while on-month prices rose 0.8 percent, driven by the rising cost of food, official data showed on Thursday.

On a year-on-year basis, food prices jumped 8.7 percent, due largely to dwindling supplies as one of the region’s worst droughts in decades ravages the Horn of Africa.

From a month earlier, meat prices rose 9.8 percent in August and the prices of fruit and sugar climbed 5.6 percent and 5.2 percent, respectively. The price of khat, a natural stimulant widely chewed by the male population, bucked the trend, falling 2.1 percent from a month earlier.
