Council for Non Governmental Organisation (Congoma) says it is finding ways on how best to discipline activists who are politically charged.
Congoma chairman MacBen Mkandawire said there are some NGOs who solely register to back government mediocrity.
“Some NGOs are in politics against the rules of NGO board,” said Mkandawire.
He said it is sad that some people register their NGOs just to back ruling party and government agendas when they do not have activities on the ground, like projects for the people.
Mkandawire said it has always been difficult to deal with such politically charged activists as some of them are not registered with Congoma.
“Some choose to register through the companies Act while others register with the NGO board, so is not easy to discipline them because they are not our members,” he said.
But Emmie Chanika of Civil Liberties Committee said people should not be forced to register with Congoma.
She said NGO Board is the only lawful body where NGOs should be registered.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
