Pan-African Parliament calls for more support

Story by Ian Zvoma

THE Pan-African Parliament (PAP) has made a passionate plea for more financial support to fully executive its mandate.

This comes at a time the African Union organ has not been receiving enough funding to promote inclusive development on the continent.

The PAP was formed in March 2004 to ensure the full participation of African people in the economic development and integration of the continent.

The mandate includes facilitating and overseeing the implementation of African Union (AU) policies, objectives, and programmes.

The institution is, however, failing to fulfil its mandate due to lack of financial support as alluded to by PAP President, Chief Fortune Charumbira in a performance review report presented during the third ordinary session of the 6th parliament in Midrand, South Africa this Wednesday.

PAP legislators weighed in highlighting the importance of a fully funded institution.

Meanwhile, Chief Charumbira has dismissed reports of financial mismanagement at PAP saying the organisation is charting a new course.

The PAP is an AU organ which provides a platform for people from all African states to be involved in discussions and decision-making on problems and challenges facing the continent, hence the need for adequate financial resources.
