Zimbabwe bans NGOs for failing to register with the authorities

Zimbabwe has banned 30 NGOs operating in Masvingo, ostensibly for failing to register with central and local authorities.

The latest ban, which includes Care International, the Zimbabwe Peace Project and the Community Development Programme, is fuelling speculation about widespread intimidatory campaigns to follow.

Justifying the ban, Masvingo, Titus Maluleke, argues that: “These organisations have left us with no choice except to suspend them from operating in the province with immediate effect, because they have twice failed to submit to the requirements of our laws."
