Lafarge Cement Company has signed an agreement with Central Eastern African Railway System (CEARS) in the exportation of clinker from Zambia to Malawi.

CEARS Company Engineer Paul Madula confirmed the development to Zambian journalists who undertook a tour of the Chipata/Mchinji railway line in commemorating South Africa Development Committee (SADC) Day in Mchinji.

Mr Madula said his company will be transporting 5600tpa of clinker through the railway line from Chipata to Blantyre for an initial period of three years after which the contract can be extended.

He explained that this means that the Chipata/Mchinji line will be in use and will be transporting the commodity twice a week.
