The Chinese ambassador to Botswana has warned NGOs in the country to desist from acting like government organs.
Ding Xiaowen reminded NGOs that they are representatives of thousands of people from all walks of life.
Ding says NGOs should act as a messenger between the government and the people to promote mutual understanding and social responsibility. He stressed that NGOs should be "a partner, a supporter, and a promoter" when in agreement with government on certain issues.
