This interest was further motivated by the increase in reports of corruption in the mining sector and findings from the media and research studies by local and international organizations such as the Zimbabwe Environmental Law Association (ZELA) and Global Witness. All these studies confirmed that the country`s mining sector has been punctuated by corruption, lack of transparency and accountability in revenue generation and distribution.
As such TI-Z undertook an investigative study on factors fuelling corruption in the mining sector. Central to this paper is the theme on how power in its various forms and manifestations (political, bureaucratic and financial) is fuelling mineral related corruption. This paper locates the root cause of mineral related corruption which is fueled by power dynamics a in the strained policy, legal and institutional framework governing mining in Zimbabwe.
