DR Congo: cement price rise in Kananga
Published: 18 September 2015


The price of a 50kg bag of cement is rising in Kananga, the capital of Central Kasai, Democratic Republic of Congo. It is now around US$40-42 from US$37.75 a week ago, according to local press reports.

The price increase has been attributed to the high cost of transport where a 10t truck costs US$4500 compared with US$5000 for a 40t rail wagon.
