More than 200 workers of Cheetah Cement, led by the Mineworkers Union of Namibia, plan to hold a peaceful demonstration on Thursday morning. Cheetah Cement General Manager, Kevin Lee explained that the company proposed an increase of N$ 800 for employees earning less than N$ 6 000, and a N$ 500 increase for those earning more than N$ 6 000, which the workers refused, instead demanding hefty salaries which he says the company cannot afford. Lee said that the company also proposed the introduction of a pension fund to start in January 2023, and the introduction of a medical aid scheme with 80 per cent on the company, and 20 on employees, both of which were also rejected by the workers.
