Let’s build together with PPC’s Dikagong


Sit back and be transported to Dikagong – a fictional city in South Africa and the new show that wants to start conversations across Mzansi.

Catch the 13-part edutainment radio series that addresses everyday building concerns.

The 100% local drama aims to empower listeners to experience a better quality of life, recognising that ordinary South Africans need far more support with home building than they are currently receiving.

Dikagong is brought to you by PPC – the iconic material and solutions provider who has been part of homes and buildings for the past 127 years.

“As the leading supplier of cement-related products in Southern Africa, we actively seek to create sustainable value that makes a real difference to everyone. Our South African communities are at the core of this commitment. Therefore, by using Dikagong we aim to ensure that all South Africans, irrespective of their socio-economic status, get the best education and expert guidance that relates to building quality, durable homes,” explains Njombo Lekula, managing director at PPC RSA Cement.


Listeners can see themselves in each of the characters as they follow the tale of MaPPC and his no-nonsense mother, Mme Moagi. She, like all of us, wants only the best materials when building her dream home. Dikagong, under the guidance of Ntate Mothusi, the village hardware store owner, takes the nation on a journey as they learn about building homes that will stand the test of time.
