GHANA - TAXATION/CONTRACT FRUSTRATION (14 MARCH): The high debt burden raises the
risk of tax increases in the mining sector and delayed payments to government contract.
KENYA - POLITICAL INSTABILITY (4 FEBRUARY): Elections are likely to go to a second
round of voting; devolution is likely to increase localised contests over tax and
natural resource development
SOUTH AFRICA - PROTESTS & RIOTS (22 JANUARY): The frequency of protests and riots
is increasing; there is only moderate risk to commercial property as most violence
is contained within townships.
ZAMBIA- POLITICAL RISK (18 JANUARY): The government is likely to make populist decisions
including expropriation, contract cancellation and raised taxes, particularly in
the mining sector
NIGERIA - TERRORISM (29 NOVEMBER 2012): Increasing military pressure on Boko Haram
is likely to reduce the group's operating capability, particularly against targets
in the south.
