Tanzania: Charles Mwijage, the minister for Industry, Trade and Investment, has threatened to cancel the licences of so called cement ‘super-dealers’ if they fail to curb rising prices. Super-dealers are middlemen who acquire cement directly from the producers for sale to distributors, according to the Citizen newspaper. Mwijage made the comments on a tour of the Tanzania Portland Cement Company. He called on the management of the cement company to intervene in order to hold prices down for ends users. However, the cement company wants the government to take action itself against traders.
