Rwanda: Cimerwa says it has received approval to list its shares on the Rwanda Stock Exchange. The move is part of the strategy by the government to sell its stake in the cement producer, according to the New Times newspaper. The government and its related shareholders own a 49% stake in the subsidiary of South Africa-based PPC.
Company chairman Regis Rugemanshuro said that the company had decided to continue with its plans despite the coronavirus pandemic. The announcement has been made while Cimerwa is supplying cement to a large government tender to build new schools. The cement producer added that, “Supply to this project is progressing smoothly with the company’s production currently being robust at close to design capacity.”
