The leader of the opposition United Democracy Alliance (UDA) Daniel Shumba has declared that his party will give out grants to all unemployed Zimbabweans when they come into power. Speaking at the launch of his new party President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s former ally said,
We are the only party in the country that wants to uplift the lives of suffering citizens. We are going to be introducing something that Zanu PF has never thought about and, if they are here, they are hearing it for the first time.
We are going to introduce what we call the Basic Income Grant so that each and every child who is 18 years and above will be entitled to receiving equal the amount of poverty datum line.
And this is a serious matter, it’s not like bullet trains. We are going to use our mineral levies to contribute to the Basic Income Grant that will go towards our citizens.
