ZANU-PF Urged to Stop Attacking NGOs

Zimbabwe’s opposition parties and political analysts have urged ZANU-PF to be consistent and desist from attacking non-governmental organisations (NGOs), saying this creates unnecessary hostility in the face of need.

Opposition parties urged the government not to create unnecessary acrimony after a spirited campaign by the ruling party to lampoon NGOs.

MDC-T spokesperson, Obert Gutu, points out that: “Needless to state non-governmental organisations, as usual, will have to come onto the scene in order to provide food to the starving millions in the villages and towns.”

Call for Mugabe to Apologise to the Nation, NGOs

According to Trevor Saruwaka Mutasa, if Zimbabwe goes hungry it has no capacity to feed its own people and therefore depends on non-governmental organisations and donor countries contrary to the mantra by President Robert Mugabe that they must leave us alone.

Mutasa states that in an article titled ‘food for all is our goal’, the country’s Minister of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare, Prisca Mupfumira, attempts to pronounce a policy position on who must get this aid by boldly declaring that food is for all.

Civil Society will head to the Constitutional Court in Braamfontein to challenge the Restitution of Land Rights Amendment Act.

Nonprofits and Politics

The role of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in world and country politics has always been vibrant and widespread and has grown in importance since the 1990’s. Many NGOs through the years have fought for transparent political processes and political accountability, and developing a democratic culture among citizens. It seems to have become even more important in the past few years.

Corporate Governance in South Africa: Weak Links that Allow Fraud and Corruption to be Rampant

One has now lost count of the number of fraud and corruption incidents that get reported in the media - almost daily.  Most would agree that this indicates our corporate governance is collapsing, has completely collapsed or that it needs some serious re-vamp. The fact that fraud and corruption incidents do get reported, confirms that corporate governance still works – but mainly on the detective side.
