Women carrying bundles of firewood on their heads are a common city sight now. Firewood has fast become people's cooking fuel of choice as kerosene supplies are scant and expensive.
Likewise the petrol station the women are passing is also a familiar scene – empty pumps mean no vehicles waiting. Most turn to the black market to fill up.
The tin street signs that used to adorn the city have almost all disappeared – opportunists melt and mould them into funnels, which are handy to siphon fuel.
