Tanzania Portland Cement Company (TPCC) has refuted reports of closing down its operations due to environmental concerns as "false and overly exaggerated".

Alfonso Rodriguez, TPCC managing director told the Daily News on Wednesday that: "We are not closed, the operations are going on as usual at TPCC."

Last week, the cement producer was reportedly ordered to close down operations by the National Environment Management Council (NEMC) over allegations of environmental pollution.
