Lusaka prices continue to rise, Zambia
16 September 2013


The price of cement in the Zambian capital of Lusaka has continued to rise through the year, due to increased fuel and transportation costs.

The average price across the city is now ZMW85 with traders citing increased costs of transportation compared to ZMW50 two years earlier.

However, Lafarge Cement CEO Emmanuel Rigaux played down the increase saying they had no control over retail prices. "Our duty is to sell the commodity at the most productive efficient cost and not police at what price the traders are selling the commodity at," Mr Regaux told Zambia Reports.
