The article presents information related to Malawi and Kenya. It is stated that in early September 2009, Bingu wa Mutharika, president of Malawi, took the bold step of revoking the temporary work permits of four foreign heads of major tobacco-buying companies. This had followed repeated warnings to exploitative tobacco buyers following reports of the poor prices they were offering. In Kenya, tourism was one of the biggest economic casualties of the violence which broke out in January 2008.
