Angola has the highest official inflation rate of at least 12 southern African nations that released consumer-price data in the last two months.

Consumer prices grew 31.8 percent last month from a year ago, the fastest rate since November 2004, two years after the end of an almost three-decade-long civil war.

The inflation rate more than tripled from a year earlier as a slump in crude oil prices cut government revenue and resulted in the kwanza weakening 26 percent against the dollar.
