According to Matabele, CFM has successfully persuaded investors in the Balama graphite undertaking to use Pemba port as their outlet to the international market.

“The port of Pemba will respond to the opportunities presented by the Balama graphite, and everything is being done to ensure the project comes to fruition,” Matabele said, adding that the product would be bagged and containerised at the dry port.
