Johannesburg - Shares of cement producer PPC Ltd rise 1.66 percent to 32.53 rand, recouping some of the losses after falling more than 3 percent in the previous session.

The shares fell on Monday after the company indicated it could take a hit in its business in Zimbabwe, where the government has been forcing foreign firms to sell shares to locals. - Reuters
