Cement faces counterfeiting

 

Almost 37 tons of cement counterfeited had been seized at the #Douala port on June 16th, 2017 and destructed some few days later, in presence of some administrative and security authorities  of the town. This cargo was made up of 747 bags labelled #Dangote, #Medcem, #Mira-Co, #Conch, #Quifeurou and #Alpha. The presumed author, presented to the press as the producer of the counterfeited cement, was also of the number.

Added to the 747 cement bags seized, “our investigations help us discovering that 3000 bags of cement counterfeited had been already produced and distributed. Good cement was mixed with expired cement and sand. The mixture was then put in bags from various cement companies” said Col. Louba Zal, commander of the 2nd region of gendarmerie at that time, now General by Presidential Decree.
