The inauguration of the think tank was initially postponed without explanation.

Then on 29 June it was launched and reporters were told that 16 members constitute the think tank. They did not see the members at the launch. A list was provided to reporters but they were later told not to publish it. It is now more than a month since the launching of the think tank but its members are yet to be announced. Nothing has been said as to when they are to start.

The think tank is supposed to be the brain of the government, guiding it in its policies and programmes and therefore has a significant role to play in the development of this nation. It’s coming into being has been delayed since January and it needs not be further delayed.
