Zambian NGOs Refuse to Register

Zambian NGOs resolve not to register under the controversial NGO Act until all the necessary amendments on the proposed unconstitutional Act of 2009 are resolved

Four hundred and sixty Zambian non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have resolved not to register under the NGO Act until all the necessary amendments on the proposed unconstitutional Act of 2009 are resolved.

Non Governmental Organisation Coordinating Council (NGOCC) chairperson, Beatrice Grillo, says the Act of 2009 is retrogressive and that it is not in the best interest of some civil society organisations (CSOs).

Grillo maintains that no genuine NGO is prepared to register under the Act in its current form.
