Exiled former Cabinet Minister, Professor Jonathan Moyo has claimed that a large number of members to the Presidential Advisory Council (PAC) have ceased attending the meetings.
The 26-member PAC was set up in January this year by president Emmerson Mnangagwa to advise him and assist him in formulating key economic policies and strategies that advance Vision 2030.
Moyo posted on microblogging site, Twitter suggesting that PAC was collapsing. He said:
Has #Pac packed up? At its last meeting two months ago, only six out of 24 members showed up. The six got a tongue lashing from Mnangagwa who now sees #PAC as a disused tool. The big guns, like Kuda Tagwirei, no longer attend #PAC which now attracts six or so patronage seekers! pic.twitter.com/oMnK3KYBIP

His remarks come when some of the advisors including Petina Gappah have since left the council with Gappah saying that she could not work with some of Mnangagwa’s aides.
