Lilongwe-based non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have teamed up to challenge the policy formulation process which NGO Board of Malawi is undertaking.
Some of the NGOs and their executive directors appearing on the list of signatories include; Timothy Mtambo of CHRR, Gift Trapence of CEDEP, Amon Lukhele of OSF, Peter John of SYAMA, Rev MacDonald Sembereka, and Richard Yohane of RISE.
NGO Board is consulting NGOs in ten districts to seek their input on the NGO Policy. However, there has been a lot of resistance from various stakeholders who feel that the process is political, undemocratic and staged.
