Kenya: Bamburi Cement’s pretax profit has risen by 46% year-on-year to US$83.5m in 2015, according to Reuters. Its turnover rose by 9% to US$386m. The rise in profit was attributed to higher sales, investment income and currency gains.

"Turnover increased... driven by increased demand in the key domestic markets in Kenya and Uganda resulting mainly from growth in large infrastructure projects and contractor segments, despite some slow down in domestic market in the last quarter," said Bamburi in a statement.
