Boost For Construction Sector

The construction industry in Zimbabwe will be revolutionised following the commissioning by President Mnangagwa yesterday of Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe’s dry mortar mix plant, dramatically expanding the range and quantities of raw materials suitable for the latest building technologies along with additional lime for agriculture and water treatment.

Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe is a subsidiary of Switzerland-based LafargeHolcim. The new dry mortar mix plant which was sourced from Turkey, is the largest of its kind in Southern Africa, and is the first such plant installed in any LafargeHolcim operation in Africa, putting Zimbabwe into a continental leading position.

President Mnangagwa noted that the completion of other projects like the Emergency Road Rehabilitation Programme, dam construction, housing delivery, provision of social amenities, work spaces for SMES among others would also be expedited with the new range of materials now produced locally instead of being imported.
