Workers at Dangote Cement plant have gone on strike demanding better pay.
The workers who are paid between K800 and K1200 basic salaries also want Dangote to allow them to join labour unions, or create their own.
Dangote employees about 850 workers.
When he was campaigning in Ndola last week, president Edgar Lungu said that Dangote pays its workers very well. It seems the statement from Lungu has triggered the strikes as workers are annoyed by the statement by Lungu who is supposed to protect their interests.
