In reality, Royce is there to discover why whole tribes have gone missing. His investigation leads him to the trail of an international conspiracy involving rare earth minerals — once-obscure minerals which have now been found in abundance in Africa’s Rift Valley. High-tech industries have become reliant on these rare earth minerals, leading “claim jumpers” to forcibly remove whole tribes of people to secure access to these minerals.

A big thank you to the authors for letting me give away copies of their books.
