One year on, Youths to review Successes and Challenges of the GPA

The National Youth Development Trust through the Bulawayo Youth Council (BYC) will this Saturday the 12th of September 2009 launch the forth topic and series eight of its Policy Dialogue Meetings under the theme The Global Political Agreement (GPA) One Year On: Successes and Challenges- A Youth’s Perspective.

On the 15th of September 2008 Zimbabwe’s political parties represented in parliament namely the Zimbabwe African National Union Patriotic Front (ZANU PF) the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) led by Morgan Tsvangirai and the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) led by Professor Arthur Mutambara, entered into an agreement to work together to revive the economy and restore democracy and the rule of law in Zimbabwe. A year has gone by since this compromise position, therefore NYDT through the BYC wishes to review the progress made so far in relation to the lives of Zimbabweans in general and youths in particular in the backdrop of this arrangement.

This theme shall be taken to two of Bulwayo’s constituencies and then to the youths in Lupane before the formulation of a Policy position paper on the gathered views. Our speakers on this topic include Mr Tabang Nare and Mr Butler Tambo, civic activists who will unpack the topic to the audiences before every debate.

The first of these meetings will be held in Bulawayo East and our invited guest is the MP for the area Honourable Tabitha Kumalo as well as the senior ward councilors for wards 3 and 4, Mr Martin K. Moyo and Mr Paul Malaba respectively. The meeting shall be held at Rio Hotel from 1330hrs and expected to end at 1600hrs. All are welcome.
