Dangote Cement company in Tanzania has apologized to the government after customers complain of a hike in price.
According to the company, the price increase was due to the maintenance process in their plant which causes the countrywide price hikes.
However, Mtwara Regional Commissioner, Gelesius Byakanwa has ordered the management of the plant to immediately publish the actual prices of the cement to their customers to stop further inflation after paying them a visit at their plant.

He further stated that maintenance should not be termed as an emergence case, instead the public must be informed on the matter to address shortage of supply in the market.
