AFRODAD was among the panellists to a discussion on Public Finance Management hosted by the National Association of Non-Governmental Organizations (NANGO) In Harare, Zimbabwe, 20th September 2019.  The panel discussion was attended by MPs from the Public Accounts Committee, representatives of the private sector, and civil society. Zimbabwe's public finance management is weak and the evidence is vividly contained in the lives of the ordinary citizens who are finding it hard to access public services due to government's failure to provide. AFRODAD noted that as a result of poor public finance management in the country, through evidence documented by the Annual Reports (2018, 2019), published by the Office of the Auditor General, the country has been experiencing: fiscal leakages through corruptions and illicit financial flows (IFFs), wasteful expenditures, a tendering series of undeserving companies, bad cooperate governance practices and wasteful expenditures that has left the country bleeding.

AFRODAD called on the government to strengthen Fiscal transparency and accountability in the nation's PFM framework with fiscal soundness, balance between revenue and expenditure, transparency, and management efficiency for financial operations. This will limit fiscal leakages and increase social spending and investment.  AFRODAD also called upon the Government to ensure that there is fiscal transparency in the management of public resources; to guarantee trust between citizens and government through citizens participation in government programme; to regulate PFM in the national and provisional government levels and to ensure that all revenue expenditures, assets and liabilities of national and provisional governments are managed efficiently and effectively.

IN A NUTSHELL

AFRODAD's work puts people first! As such we are contributing to building an Africa in which governments will strongly play their sovereign role to protect, provide and invest in and for their citizens:

  1. Governments must borrow responsibly so that they do not compromise the wellbeing of citizens and prosterity.
  2. Governments must place domestic resource mobilisation at the center of financing sustainable development goals.
  3. Principles for effective development should be adhered to by both lenders and developing countries.
