President Museveni broke ground for the construction of a cement plant in Daka village, Budaka District, Uganda.

The new 5000tpd factory will be constructed by the Dao Group of Kuwait and is expected to be twice the size of the Hima Cement Factory in Kasese.

Presently, Uganda counts two cement plants, operated by Tororo Cement and Lafarge-owned Hima Cement, resulting in a national installed capacity of 1.9Mta.
