The manufacturers and distributors of Tembo Cement, Mbeya Cement Company limited (MCC), has changed the look of its cement bags by adding the Lafarge logo.

The new bag with green and brown colours has hits the local market for the first time this week. The MCC general manager Mbuvi Ngunze said in a statement yesterday that the new Tembo Cement bag is also improved to reduce leakages.
