Knitting Sustainable Development from Mineral Revenue

IntroductionThe harsh socio-economic environment prevailing in the country underscores the importance fighting the resource curse. A mineral rich country, endowed with world class mineral assets, platinum and chrome deposits which rank second best in the world after South Africa, is ravished by cholera. A medieval disease. Revenue generated by government is consumed by recurrent expenditure. leaving little resources to invest in health, education, clean and portable water. These struggles…See More

"Great work Mukasiri. It’s encouraging to see that work is being done to formalise the ASM sector which has been operating along large scale mining in Zimbabwe for as long as I can remember."

Mining Nuggets Of Wisdom From An Artisanal Miner

Introduction According to the Africa Mining Vison (AMV), Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining (ASM) is an integral part of mining.  The sector is critical for optimal exploitation of mineral resources because some deposits are not economically viable for large scale mining. Nuggets of development wisdom that can be mined from Mrs Ncube, a determined small-scale miner from Bubi district helps to explain why ASM sector is viewed positively by AMV. Mrs Ncube’s lived realities shows that the ASM sector…See More

SONA: Do I Smell A Breath of Fresh Air on Mineral Resource Governance Reforms?

Introduction A country that is endowed with diverse and significant mineral wealth is crippled socio-economically. Cholera outbreak – a mediaeval disease, severe foreign currency shortages, inferior tax revenue inflows and high levels of corruption are all signs that mineral benefits are not shared with citizens. Several mining mega deals were sealed this year, yet the public is not aware whether the deals are good or bad for sustainable development. Hence the deep urge to scan the State of the…See More

Tax Incentives Can Puncture Efforts To Revamp Service Delivery

Cholera, the scourge currently haunting Zimbabwe is indicative of the sorry state of public service delivery – health, water and sanitation and education. A clear violation of socio-economic rights  provided in the Constitution. It is pertinent, therefore to focus on how government can mobilise finance to revamp public service delivery. Amidst measured excitement over government’s quest to re-engage with the West and the luring of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), it should not be lost that tax…See More
