Khaya Now Importing “Clinker” Raw Material From Zambia

Khaya Cement has been blamed for its recent retrenchments due to its failing to live by the code its predecessor Lafarge cement once lived by. Khaya is now failing to produce one of its ingredients cement clinker , a solid material produced in the manufacture of portland cement as an intermediary product

This has resulted in the Cement maker failing to live up to its obligations ending in retrenchment.
Before it was locally taken over, and renamed to Khaya, Lafarge cement was the largest cement maker in the country employing thousands and also benefitted the local community in terms of development.
The clinker occurs as lumps or nodules, usually 3 millimetres (0.12 in) to 25 millimetres (0.98 in) in diameter. It is produced by sintering (fusing together without melting to the point liquefaction) limestone and aluminosilicate materials such as clay during the cement kiln stage.
Things have certainly gone haywire and bezerk and the company is now struggling to manufacture one of its own raw materials this “clinker” that Was Once Locally Produced By Lafarge Hence Producing 19 Trucks Daily Instead of the usual 34.
