Zimbabwe’s Non-Governmental Organizations Bill

Out of Sync with SADC Standards and a Threat to Civil Society Groups

Legacy Link
The government of Zimbabwe drafted the 2004 Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) Bill after a four-year period of deteriorating relations with oppositional civil society organizations, including NGOs, churches, trade unions, and the independent media. The Bill will adversely affect, and effectively eliminate, all organizations involved in promoting and defending human rights.
