Gilbert Makore commented on Anton Rühling's blog post 'Is Tanzania’s export ban a high stakes game of poker with Acacia?'
"Totally agreed. My own take is this is to force mining companies to the table. There is certainly likely to be movement either from company or from gvt on the ban. If media reports are anything to go by- it is indeed odd to try to address issues…"

The Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Mining Company (ZCDC) Needs Watching

The Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Mining Company (ZCDC) is currently mining diamonds in Marange albeit on a small scale given that there remains legal contestation over the consolidation process itself. Companies including Anjin, Jinan and Mbada have challenged the consolidation at the Courts.What is of interest is that ZCDC intends to conduct riverbed gold mining in Gache Gache River on the eastern basin…See More

Zimbabwe's Mining Sector in 2017: Through the Looking Glass

1-Gold will continue to do well. The country is likely to breach 20 tonnes once again as the RBZ continues its drive to mop up ASM gold through increased monitoring and improving market access (‘ no questions asked’ policy). There might not be a significant increase in gold deliveries if the liquidity crisis does not ease. Deliveries are likely to plateau- discouraged by failure of FPR to pay hard currency but evened off by miners who may still want some of the 5% export incentive. Alluvial…See More

A forgotten people on a not so forgotten land: Travails of the Turkana living with oil on their land

Posted on March 6, 2019 at 11:44 0 Comments

I spent a week in Turkana. A most depressing week on the vast, parched and barren Turkana land. Arriving in Turkana, there are no illusions- it is a harsh place, intolerably hot with little vegetative cover. And yet, this land, most barren- yielded an oil resource that holds the potential to transform the lives of not just the Turkana, but the lives of many Kenyan citizens.

Tullow Oil, with government oversight, has been actively developing the project from as far back as 2012. The…

Tullow Oil has stated that the…

New Discussion Paper on Sub-National Payments in Kenya's Oil Sector

Posted on May 8, 2018 at 11:12 1 Comment

This paper aims to give an overview of revenue benefit sharing in the context of Kenya’s oil development in Turkana. It outlines the importance of revenue sharing; what the different proposed formulas may mean with respect to the cash value of transfers to sub-national levels; assesses absorptive capacity of Turkana county as this has been put forward as justifying the proposed revenue sharing formula as contained in the current Bill and concludes with recommendations for both national and…
