Is there an African resource curse?

Oxfam: Oxfam Ambassador Anquan Boldin was among the four witnesses to offer their views to Congress on how countries’ discovery of oil, minerals and other natural resources can exacerbate poor governance and corruption, thereby denying the economic benefits of mining across populations. He was joined in the hearing by Mohammed Amin Adam, Executive Director of the Africa Centre for Energy Policy in Ghana, Tutu Alicante Leon, Executive Director of Equatorial Guinea Justice, and Corinna Gilfillan, Director of Global Witness in the US. Their responses to the question, “Is there an African resource curse?” are taken below from their testimonies.
