Govt to continue importing cement products

Government says it will continue importing cement products to supplement local production.

The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism says such is the case because the domestic production has not reached its peak due to inconsistent power supply.

Since the country started experiencing power problems last year, local cement manufacturers scaled down production, a situation which forced contractors to start importing cement products from other countries such as Zambia.

According to Deputy Director of Small and Medium Enterprises in the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism Wiskes Mkombezi, the window created some challenges on the part of the buyers, as most traders took advantage of the situation by over charging the prices on the market.
