I don't know how long you've been 'in', but growth in share price has been illusive for years. And as far as not paying a dividend because you are in Africa, I would take the opposite view. Because it is in a risky area you should get some return in case something goes wrong. They have the cash flow. No one is suggesting gutting the balance sheet, just return some money while we wait for share appreciation.
If it were in a safe area you could forgo a dividend knowing an uprising isn't going to interrupt production.
