To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, what steps she is taking to ensure that the Government of Zimbabwe distributes UK bilateral aid fairly through civic and representative community organisations.
24 January 2019
The UK Government does not channel any UK bilateral aid through the Government of Zimbabwe. The UK, through the Department for International Development in Zimbabwe, provides extensive financial and technical assistance to a wide range of civil society organisations in Zimbabwe. We do not publicise our partners to avoid putting them at risk. Our funding supports Zimbabwean citizens to hold the state to account in its respect for human rights and democratic principles.
