Nigerian billionaire Mr Aliko Dangote’s billion dollar prospects in Zimbabwe remain on track as the famed richest man in Africa scouts for massive coal and lime opportunities.
The reality of this venture may not be far from being realised following the launch of a conduit for the smooth facilitation of the deals in Harare this Friday (yesterday).
A team from the billionaires group which visited the country last month comprised of two senior geologists who confirmed that Mr Dangote was still interested in massive coal mining ventures in the country which would feed into his interest in setting up a power plant in Zimbabwe.
Apart from this venture, the billionaire is expected to extend his cement manufacturing venture into the country.
Africa Investment Hub founder and chief executive officer and facilitator of the Dangote deals, Mrs Josey Mahachi reaffirmed Mr Dangote’s commitment to invest in Zimbabwe following the launch of the investment project in the capital this Friday (yesterday).
The Africa Investment Hub is expected to provide a soft cushion and perfect conduit to facilitating Mr Dangote’s deals in Zimbabwe along with other possible interests from another African magnate Mr Tony Elumelu who is keen to extend his banking web into the country.
