There are few easy wins when it comes to regional relations in Southern Africa. But on wildlife conservation, the Southern African Development Community (SADC) is taking an international lead.
Africa has an often-overlooked history on innovative regional integration, including on conservation.

South Africa comes in at eighth place on a world classification table of women in national parliament. These are all developments that deserve to be applauded as the nation is taking strides towards the ultimate goal of achieving women’s rights. However, in the same instance it is never enough until we reach the peak of equality in all spheres, when women’s dignity and rights can be fairly observed in our nation.
Zimbabwe’s opposition parties and political analysts have urged ZANU-PF to be consistent and desist from attacking non-governmental organisations (NGOs), saying this creates unnecessary hostility in the face of need.
Opposition parties urged the government not to create unnecessary acrimony after a spirited campaign by the ruling party to lampoon NGOs.
MDC-T spokesperson, Obert Gutu, points out that: “Needless to state non-governmental organisations, as usual, will have to come onto the scene in order to provide food to the starving millions in the villages and towns.”
The role of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in world and country politics has always been vibrant and widespread and has grown in importance since the 1990’s. Many NGOs through the years have fought for transparent political processes and political accountability, and developing a democratic culture among citizens. It seems to have become even more important in the past few years.
