NGOs Can "Go To Hell," Says ZANU PF

NGOs Can

ZANU PF says Zimbabwe doesn’t need non-governmental organisations (NGOs) as they have not brought about any tangible development to the country.

Addressing journalists in Harare on Tuesday, ZANU PFspokesperson Christopher Mutsvangwa said NGOs “can go to hell” adding that they don’t play any important role other than giving food handouts. He said:

To hell with those NGOs who have nothing to offer in Zimbabwe. There is no role played by NGOs in terms of Zimbabwe’s development and nothing can be credited to them.

There is no traceable study where NGOs have delivered production in Zimbabwe, like car manufacturing companies. What is their role if they don’t give food handouts?

However, Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum executive director Musa Kika said civil society plays a key role in sustainable development. Said Kika:

I am afraid to say he does not understand what development is, particularly sustainable development, which is impossible without civil society.

Human development, the most important development, has people at the centre, and one cannot wish away civil society in that matrix.

Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) president Obert Masaraure said ZANU PF is using NGOs as a scapegoat for its failures. | NewsDay

Please Mutsvangwa don't just rush to speak on behalf of our Political Party if you are uninformed. Please don't degrade our Party to that extent. I wish somebody in the office of His Excellence Advocate Emerson D. Mnangagwa would check with this man if he has any information before he says anything. Taneta nekunyadzisirwa nyika yedu na President vedu.

During the early 1980s, just after independence, it was DANIDA (Danish International Development Agency which helped black Zimbabweans in rural areas to construct Blair toilets & stop open defecation thus preventing Cholera. In 2007 to 2008, it was UNICEF, through the WASH Project, which gave Zimbabweans water purification pills and rehabilitated the Harare Water Works and many other water reticulation systems in cities and Rural district Councils. The COPAC Constitution making process was funded by the UNDP. The Ministry of health relies on the Global Fund, PEPFAR, USAID & many other NGOs for the free treatment of HIV/AIDS & STIs. During the GNU, It was UNICEF which printed textbooks for both secondary & primary school children throughout Zimbabwe when David Coltart was Minister of Education. The UNDP also funded demining of explosive ordinances (zvimbambaira) through a contract with MINETEC & the Zim Govt. I could go on & on. If there is no study, then do the study. The only thing Mutsvangwa does for Zimbabwe is to go to Canada on a private first class jet to attend his fat son's graduation and show off pictures on Twitter while squandering looted money in New York with Monica. His other son, Neville, is a notorious black market forex dealer who fuels Zimbabwe's inflation. Let me Stop here.

I think he vehemently believes what he is saying and I second him, besides food handouts and contract employment for a few months they don't offer much to the development of the nation. We can't be branded a nation of beggars that is what CCC leadership wants, we have an active population willing to work for their well being ...

@cpt j sparrow, your views should be based on facts not on blind loyalty. With US200 being earned by the civil servants, should we be allowed to throw the NGOs under the bus simply because your parents are so privileged that they would consider the food handouts an insult. Come on guys, try to sympathize with the less privileged people in our country. You should be mobilising aid for the people as you reserve the little that the government has for the development that you really want. NGOs have stop gape measures which provide temporary but much needed relief to the suffering people.

I don't remember exactly who said it but I recall the exact words,

"Those whom the gods hate they first make them mad"

To try and counter Mutsvangwa's tirade, would require me to be as lunatic as he is, so I will let him be.

Mutsvangwa is foolish..NGOs play pivotal roles in our society like hiv and aids intervations,sti,maternal,cancer and many more interventions thru the global fund and others.They also help in poverty reduction thru self help projects to our disadvantaged communities.For example inini ndakabatsira to start a mushroom growing project izvezvi ndavakuseri.I am an employer of 2 people now and I am getting sales of more than us$80 daily saka toti ngo yakaipa.Zanu haifariri vanhu vasingatamburi full stop

Chokwadi. To hell with organisations like Angel of Hope Foundation yaMai Mnangagwa. We don't see benefit yezvima ngo zvenyu izvozvo. Why do you allow her kuti vagare vachinekaira nenyika yese purpoting to be helping people through her ngo if ngos are useless or it is now a government organisation. Right now we are seeing ZANUPF crooks going around fleecing vanhu mari offering nurse aide courses in 5 days and doing all sort of crazy things and you call that development!

BEAM chaiyo is struggling and ngo arms like Higher Life Foundation, UNICEF, FACT Zimbabwe nemamwe have been looking after academic needs of many needy Zimbabwean children even sending some to get tertiary education iro dzoro bandama roti ngos are doing nothing. Your government hates accountability ndosaka mukuda kurwisa ana Maguwu weCentre for Resource Government and other human rights ngos kuti munyatsoite zvamunoda nesu musina anokutsiurai kana kukudzorai.

This is the problem with Blabbermouth Christopher Mutsvangwa. One time he behaves normally and on the other times he behaves like a lunatic.

If he eats pretty well at his house, the rest of the citizens are sleeping on one meal per day. Therefore, they need food from NGOs. Zimbabwe has produced adequate food on very few years. NGOs have always fed our citizens. Why does Blabbermouth Christopher Mutsvangwa want to belittle NGOs ?

The govt alone cant cater for all anti retroviral supplies in this country and NGO's help in supplying to the whole country.
