The Department of Home Affairs in Zambia has disclosed that more than eight Zambian NGOs are under investigation for alleged money laundering and other illegal activities.
Minister Lameck Mangani says the government, through the registrar of societies is also scrutinising some NGOs that have drifted from the mandate for which they were established.
Mangani, who states that the Drug Enforcement Commission commenced investigations of the NGOs late last year following concerns on how the funds were being managed, is also urging NGOs to maintain high levels of accountability. Once the investigations are concluded, the erring NGOs will be prosecuted.
