I WISH to point out to Larfage, Dangote and Zambezi Portland cement producers that the prices of cement have escalated beyond the reach of the poor.
How do you sell one pocket of cement between K72.00 and K75, more than the price of a 25kg bag of mealie-meal? What is CCPC doing in normalising these abnormal prices?
It is ridiculous for any trader to sell the commodity at K75.
We urge Dangote and Larfage to reduce this commodity to a reasonable price to enable all Zambians building to benefit.
This is daylight robbery by the manufacturers of cement.
