Tom Bowker

I am a journalist based in Maputo, Mozambique. I co-founded and co-edit Zitamar News, the leading English-language news source on the country. Prior to founding Zitamar I served as Bloomberg's correspondent in Mozambique. I still freelance for a number of publications, focusing mainly on politics and business and economic news.


Article for The Economist on Mozambique's debt scandal.


A piece for This Is Africa on the problems facing South African utility Eskom.


This was an exclusive I wrote for Zitamar News, the Mozambique-focused business publication that I founded with my wife in 2015.
