According to the outgoing Rwandan Ambassador to Tanzania Zeno Mutimura, the factory will deliver the cement to Kigali.
"The factory management made the pledge as part of their contribution to the One Dollar Campaign and it is a welcome gesture," Mutimura said in an interview with The New Times, yesterday.
The First Counsellor at the Embassy Rwandan in Dar es Salaam, Shakilla Umutoni, added that the cement will be delivered through Tanga Cement’s Kigali branch.
