Anti-Mugabe NGOs Wasted ‘Our Money’ – Diplomat

There is very little to show for the huge amounts of money invested in local pro-democracy groups over the years, a western envoy has lamented

There is very little to show for the huge amounts of money invested in local pro-democracy groups over the years, a western envoy has lamented, adding that the non-governmental organisation sector has become as corrupt as the regime whose ouster it sought.

A diplomat who heads one of the western donor organisations in the country says that, “You can see that there (has been) no, or very little, change in the democracy situation in the country despite the civil society having been well resourced financially.”

After the West imposed sanctions to punish President Robert Mugabe for electoral fraud and gross human rights abuses nearly 15 years ago, western donors also increased funding for pro-democracy groups to help upscale pressure on the ZANU-PF strongman.
