NGOs Cancel Programmes Following Mnangagwa’s Threats

The Zimbabwe Peace Project (ZPP) claims a number of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) last month cancelled their programming following threats by President Emmerson Mnangagwa that government would go after NGOs who organised the January protests.

In a report, ZPP said programming of many NGOs was disturbed following Mnangagwa’s statements. Said ZPP:

Following the utterances of the President, NGOs have been forced by circumstances to cancel some of their programming, as a result, the operating space has become volatile and unsafe for most programming. ZPP is concerned about the continued blame game targeting civic society organisations (CSOs) that have been described as regime change agents by the government, in the aftermath of the violent protests as this tarnishes the role and efforts made by CSOs in supporting engagements towards building lasting peace in Zimbabwe.
