Fear Grips NGOs Over 'Apartheid Laws'

The government plans to regulate thousands of nonprofit organisations with the imposition of ‘apartheid-era laws’

The government is planning to regulate thousands of nonprofit organisations with the imposition of ‘apartheid-era laws’ that would hobble them in fighting on critical human rights issues often ignored by the state.

A draft document titled ‘Policy Framework on the South African Nonprofit Organisations' Law’ is already on the table after what the Department of Social Development calls ‘widespread consultation’.

Meanwhile, NGOs say the proposed changes to the NPO Act will mean stricter regulation of the sector and could lead to the establishment of a tribunal that will hear complaints against NPOs and impose sanctions on them.
