What the hell is Biti doing at think tank?
« on: April 08, 2015, 06:38:45 AM »


The former finance minister and MDC Renewal
leader quietly slipped out of the country last
week. Rumours were flying about that he had
decided to relocate to the US following the
expulsion from Parliament of him and 20 other
members of the breakaway Renewal Team.
"Biti is a visiting fellow at the Center for Global
Development. While at CGD, he will be working on
issues around fragile states, debt management,
re-engagement with the international financial
institutions and economic recovery," CGD said on
its website.
The Centre credits Biti with helping to stabilise
Zimbabwe's economy during the tenure of the
inclusive government.
"Biti served as the Minister of Finance of
Zimbabwe from 2009 to 2013, a period which saw
him turn around an economy that had been
ravaged by hyper-inflation of 500 billion percent
and an unemployment rate up to 85%," it added.
Visiting fellows generally stay at institutions for
between three months and one year depending on
the nature of the fellowship and length of study.
The CGD is an independent think-tank that works
to reduce global poverty and inequality. Its
scholars write policy views which are grounded in
evidence-based research and analysis that is
subject to peer review.
The Renewal Teamís spokesman Jacob Mafume
said: "Biti is not running away and is determined
to remain in Zimbabwe and at the helm of
Renewal despite what his detractors are saying."
