NGOs must stick to mandate: Dr Mpofu

By ZBC Reporter

ZANU PF has backed government’s position to demand work plans from non-governmental organisations, saying it promotes accountability.

The revolutionary ZANU-PF party has come out in support of the recent blitz civil society and non-governmental organisations in which government demanded work plans.

Speaking at the party headquarters in Harare this Wednesday, ZANU PF Secretary for Administration, Dr Obert Mpofu said the move will ensure that non-organisations stick to their mandate.

We want to applaud the blitz on NGOs, private voluntary organizations, trusts and similar organisations undertaken by the Harare Metropolitan Council. This exercise should be replicated in other provinces as the NGO sector has been awash with detractor narratives subtly aimed at demonising our government. As we embark on our mobilisation drive, civil society activities will mushroom, hence the need for our security to constantly monitor their activities,he said.

The party has also welcomed the 7.8 percent economic growth projection by the Minister of Finance and Economic Development, Professor Mthuli Ncube.

We wish this economic growth trajectory to continue as it will harness our 2023 election campaign. It is also note taking that our country has outperformed our regional peers which puts us in good stead as a formidable Former Liberation Movement party which wants to emancipate its people from poverty and economical empower them. Given the increasing Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the country and oil exploration by Invictus in the Zambezi valley more specifically in Muzarabani, we welcome the increased employment of soldiers by SADC to quell the situation in the Ca o Delgado province in Mozambique,said Mpofu.

The country’s economic growth projection is pinned on the bumper harvest and stable macro-economic environment which has seen inflation figures dropping significantly to about 56 percent from as high as 106 percent in June.
