The paper analyzed the role and regulation of Zimbabwean informal cross-border traders and cross-border couriers.

She has also served as a consultant to the Southern African Development Community Secretariat on human trafficking in the region. She is currently the Deputy-Chair of the African Labour Law Society. During her time at Women in Informal Employment: Globalizing and Organizing, she has worked with the International Domestic Workers' Federation to develop the Toolkit on Domestic Workers and C189, which aims to promote the realization of C189 on the ground. Pamhi is also the coordinator of the Administrative Justice Project. She has a strong interest in worker education to strengthen workers' capacity to know and use the law and to demand their legal recognition and protection as workers.
