ED Promises To Fund POLAD Activities

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has pledged to bankroll the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD), a negotiating platform with little-known opposition politicians that he created in May this year.

Speaking after receiving a report from the POLAD interlocutors during a meeting at his Kwekwe farm, Mnangagwa said he is not averse to funding his pet project. He said:

In May thereabout when we created Polad, we had no direct funding. But now this is a platform which government must support because it brings harmony, it brings peace, it brings development in the country.

Development, modernisation and industrialisation have a cost, so I am not averse to funding Polad because it brings a convergence of political and economic views for our country to move forward.

Various political commentators consider POLAD a talk shop of losers with no political or economic benefit.

Eighteen parties are taking part in POLAD even though they received less than 2% of total votes in the 2018 harmonised elections.
