NGO Bill before Zambian Parliament....

An NGO Bill which will bring NGOs under the control of Government, is presently being debated in the Zambian Parliament. As NGOs here represent an embryonic pluralistic state, this is of major concern. That yet another quango will be formed with a Board and another layer of bureaucrats seeking to bring civil society and business under greater government control is cause for concern. As a registered NGO in Zambia, we have not been consulted on the proposed Bill.
