Chewing the 'Qat' is ion the rise in Yemen ‎

Popularity of Yemen, I like 75%


The economic crisis in Yemen has driven up the price of most basic needs. Yemenis are suffering more and more from a lack of fuel, electricity, cooking gas, water and some food items. However, there are indications that the one thing that has not been affected by the crisis is qat consumption.

The qat markets are still crowded with customers. The number of qat buyers has even increased in the ‘Change Squares’ and some street corners.

Omar Al-Khateeb, general manager of a travel company, told the Yemen Times that everything has been affected in Yemen except qat. He said that that fuel, food, water and other basic needs are scarcer and more expensive in Yemen. He continued: “The strange thing is that qat wasn’t included. in our economic crisis. It’s available in all the markets and its price is stable.”
