The authors would like to thank the many stakeholders who gave so generously of their time and expertise to inform this study. We would also like to thank the LBMA team for its support and commitment to this process. Needless to say, all errors and omissions in the report are ours.

About Phuzumoya Consulting

Phuzumoya – pronounce it without the ‘h’ – is a Zulu word meaning ‘drink the wind’, or more figuratively, ‘embrace the Spirit’. The name embodies our approach to research – to take on and to embrace what we find rather than trying to make it fit preconceived notions. For over a decade, Phuzumoya Consulting has provided specialised political economy research and analysis to a wide range of private and public sector clients, mostly but not exclusively in Sub-Saharan Africa, with a particular focus on natural resource governance.
