Africa's foremost cement manufacturer, Dangote Cement is set to commission its new 3.0 million metric tonnes per annum cement plant located in Mtwara District of Tanzania on October 10, 2015.

The company will also hold the ground-breaking ceremony for 25 hectares of jetty land at Mgao village in Mtwara District in the country the same day.

The commissioning of the new cement plant, which is part of the company's Africa expansion strategy, will be the fourth in the series after Ethiopia, Zambia and Cameroun. Cement plants due for commissioning this year are located in Senegal and South Africa, while construction works are ongoing in several other African countries.

The ground-breaking for the Tanzanian cement plant was done on May 27, 2013 and within 24 months, the plant is now ready for commissioning. With the plant in operation, Tanzania is on its way to become one of the African countries which are self-sufficient in cement production.

Governments and distinguished Africans have been commending the President of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote for his massive investments across Africa. Nigeria's Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, at the commissioning of the plant in Zambia, lauded Dangote on his investments in several African countries, saying the Nigerian government was proud of him.

Osinbajo, who described Aliko Dangote as an exceptional African entrepreneur, commended his phenomenal vision, entrepreneurship and commitment to the development of Africa and Africans.

The VP said, "Dangote is a Nigerian from Kano State, and a pan-Nigerian and pan-African who has done us all proud. His companies spread over 16 African countries are a signal of an African multinational enterprise."

Cameroonian President, Paul Biya, at the commissioning of the 1.5 million metric tonnes per annum Dangote Cement grinding plant in Douala, thanked Dangote for his massive investments in cement plants across Africa. Biya expressed delight that Dangote has shown a willingness to play a significant role in the industrialization of the Cameroonian economy.

Zambian President, Edgar Lungu who also praised Dangote's business ingenuity, said "his business expansion across Africa is worthy of emulation by African businessmen in the task of continental development."

To Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, Dangote has spurred the industrialization of many African economies through the establishment of integrated cement plants, which are geared towards making those countries self-sufficient in cement production.
