- The construction of a cement plant seems to be on the way in Zimbabwe. According to the President of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote on Monday, it will be a major boost for the southern African country that is desperate for foreign investment.
- Mr. Dangote told journalists after meeting Zimbabwe Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa that he aims to invest in coal mining and power generation.
According to him”We’ve already decided to invest into Zimbabwe, that’s why we are here. Any country where you see us visiting it means, yes, we’ve decided to invest,”
The plant would produce 1.5 million tonnes of cement a year but did not say how much it would cost to build. If government permission is given, construction will begin in the first quarter of 2016.”
- He was also due to meet Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe
- At the completion of this cement plant in Zimbabwe, it will be a plus to the number of cement plants Dangote owns across the African continent.
