Kalingalinga contractors in the construction industry have complained over the recent hike in cement prices. Enoshad Enterprise Limited Supervisor, Justine Mutuma, told the Lusaka star in an interview that the increase in cement prices would adversely affect the construction industry. Mr. Mutuma said an increase in cement prices meant an increase in the prices of blocks that his company makes. He revealed that last week's cement prices were at K55, 000 per bag but had since risen to K65, 000.
