“You can find almost anything in Mwanza if you look hard enough!” or so they say. We have been able to source additional cutlery, crockery, cooking utensils, an iron, toaster and kettle along with a variety of baking trays, an airer, pegs and baskets etc etc etc.
However, one of the issues is build quality. Although there is a range of product – there is a lot which is mass produced import from China. It is true to say items are relatively cheap but they need to work. We had to return / replace the kettle, the bath mat for inside the bath is useless (not gripping but sliding around.
In my youth I remember the phrase “Made In China” as being a sign of cheap mass produced and low quality product – unfortunately the meaning remains the same today.
