The South African NPO Crisis - Time to Join Hands

More than 85 000 nonprofit organisations were registered in terms of the Nonprofit Organisations Act (NPO Act) at the end of March 2012. From October 2012 until January 2013 more than 23 000 organisations were de-registered by the Directorate for Nonprofit Organisations which falls under the auspices of the Department of Social Development. In addition, more than 35 000 organisations were marked as ‘non-compliant’.(2) In contrast, during the 2011 financial year only 468 organisations were de-registered.

NPOs and the Enemy Within

Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini must wonder what has just hit her. There she is, happily de-registering nonprofit organisations (NPOs) by the tens of thousands, and suggesting innocuous amendments to laws governing their work - and all hell breaks loose. She will find answers in our history, her department’s incompetence, and a view of charity held by many South Africans. Then there is NPO suspicion of politicians even when real danger is coming not from them, but from the private sector.
