The Zambian government says it is illegal for NGOs to advocate the removal of a democratically-elected government using potentially dangerous means such as the 'red card' campaigns.
Home Affairs Minister, Lameck Mangani, says that NGOs should be sober in their criticism, and should concentrate on civic campaigns instead of agitating violence.
Mangani says the NGOs will not be allowed to hold demonstrations against the Government because that will be a recipe for anarchy.
However, the NGOs spokesperson, Obby Chibuluma, insists that they will go ahead with the rallies and demonstrations but ensure that everything was done in conformity with the laws.
