Lafarge Holcim Cement in lime mining wrangle
Published: 16 March 2018
The High Court has granted an interdict against Lafarge Holcim Cement Zimbabwe barring the company from mining lime on a piece of land in-PFura Rural District in Mashonaland Central.

This follows an application by African Mills and Minerals, Pinkstone Mining and Timothy Matangi, a director in both companies, claiming ownership to the piece of land.

Zimbabwe Stock Exchange-listed Lafarge, a unit of French cement giant Lafarge Holcim Group, is Zimbabwe's second largest cement producer after PPC.

The interdict was granted recently by Justice Happius Zhou following an urgent chamber application that was filed at the High Court in Harare.

This follows an investigation conducted by the applicants who learnt from a news article that Lafarge's intended to mine lime on the land in-PFura.
