The Dangote Group says it will start operations in Zimbabwe this year, with its chief strategist, Dr Abdu Mukhtar, yesterday asserting that they now feel “comfortable and excited” about investing in the country.
Dr Mukhtar said the group had been satisfied with the preliminary work and was ready to roll out its projects.
As such, he said, the group’s geologists, who arrived in the country on Wednesday, would remain in the country for site visits and collection of samples for analysis ahead of the setting of a cement manufacturing plant.
Dr Mukhtar made the remarks after meeting Acting President Emmerson Mnangagwa at his Munhumutapa Offices yesterday.
“As you know, we are part of the Dangote Group that was here a few months ago and we are here to continue to work on the projects that we said we are going to do in Zimbabwe,” he said.

“Everything is on track, we are back and happy. We will continue to come back here this year and 2016 is going to be a very active year. We will be coming in and out to do all sort of things as we kick start the projects.
