The Kigali based Karuruma tin smelter was built in the early 1980’s to produce tin from concentrate coming from the “Société des Mines du Rwanda” (“SOMIRWA”). SOMIRWA managed the smelter until 1985 when it went bankrupt.
The smelter was reopened at the end of 1990 by a company called ALICOM but was closed again in April 1994 when the genocide started. After the Liberation War, smelter was privatized by the Rwanda government and until 2018 was belonging to several investors.
Luma Holding Ltd and Ngali Holdings Ltd have taken over the Smelter in the first half of 2018, after successfully winning of the purchasing tender organized by the I&M Bank. Companies have registered a JV company in Kigali, Rwanda – Luna Smelter Ltd, which is decided for the development of the plant and its operations.
