'We Don't Need You Here, Go To Ukraine', Govt Tells NGOs

'We Don't Need You Here, Go To Ukraine', Govt Tells NGOs

Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) operating in the country should relocate to Ukraine where there are people in need of their services, a senior government official has said.

Speaking during a devolution meeting in Gweru at the weekend, the Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution in Midlands, Larry Mavima, said the government doesn’t need NGOs anymore as it can now cater to citizens’ needs without their help. Said Mavima:

How long should we continue relying on other people? The country is built by its own people.

As much as possible we are now able to do a lot of things without NGOs. There was a time when NGOs were necessary. But we have to get out of this mentality.

I was serious when I said if there are NGOs that feel that they have something; let them go to Ukraine where there are people in need of their services because there is war.

Here we are a peaceful country. No one is bombing us.

More than 1.5 million people have fled Ukraine since 24 February when Russia invaded the country and started bombing cities from land, sea and air.

Meanwhile, the government is working on a new law, the Private Voluntary Organisations (PVO) Amendment Bill, which seeks to restrict the operations of NGOs.

The PVO Amendment Bill, which will amend the PVO Act, is currently being debated in Parliament and has come under immense criticism as it gives the government power to regulate the operations of NGOs and disclose their sources of funding.

what kind of thinking is this. Ukraine is in war but by far much better than Zimbabwe. 99% unemployment rate is not a joke Larry and the employed ones are earning less than poverty datum line wage. these endless strikes should be a wake up call to you morons. we need NGOs

Zvatanga futi. Shooting the messenger.

Just admit kuti Team Pachedu yafumura gure.

But the message has stuck. ZANU was caught with hands in the cookie jar. Without NGOs like Team Pachedu, they were on course to rig 2023. Now it's not that simple

It would appear Minister Mavima is out of touch with reality. VaMavima apa marasika. Teachers are incapacitated, the same with nurses and doctors. In fact, every citizen is incapacitated in Zimbabwe, except a few like vaMavima. In light of the persistent poverty among citizens, NGOs are still relevant in our country and should not be forced out of this country as suggested by Mr Mavima.

Mavhima supports Chamisa & the CCC. He says ridiculous things to decampaign ED & Zanu Pf. That way Zanu Pf supporters who benefit from donors can defect to CCC. Good job Mavhima. Nyatsotaura **** kuti vanhu vaivenge ZANU Pf. NGOs like PLAN & GOAL send thousands of Zanu Pf children to school in Zimbabwe. When cyclone IDAI happened, we saw a certain Reptile asking for support & receiving it from NGOs & Donors. Last Friday, the same Reptile was asking NGOs to help it with it's Clean Up Campaigns. UNICEF saved Zimbabwe from cholera from 2007-10. PEPFAR & GLOBAL FUND give us free ARVS, Circumcision & ****s & even pay our health workers. The donated ARVs are mostly used by Zanu Pf chefs who cant stop whoring & spreading HIV to young girls. The European Commission helps Zimbabwe with livestock projects. CRS, CARITAS, USAID, CARE, WORLD VISION & many others feed starving Zimbabweans including Zanu Pf supporters all the time. Wonzwa rimwe Zungairwa richiti hatimadi maNGOs.

How could he say such when zanu PF uses NGO donated food to campaign
They send their pple to villages days b4 food distributions tak place and announce that they wl be sending food to them yet its nt evn their party's funds that sourced the donations. Thats why lots of rural folks keep voting for Zanu PF they believe the party takes care of them , I saw this happen first hand in Plumtree and when I tried to correct the beneficiaries that its nt zanu pf donations but PLAN International donating they thought I was mad. Emakhaya abadala bazi iZanu ibalethela ukudla , this old madala shld think twice b4 he speaks nxt time

Uuuummm Prof Mavima why would you want to lie to the world that you now have the means to help your citizens. What help have you offered so far if I may ask? You send your children to expensive private schools and they eat what they want and you think they represent the country's populace? We are now by far worse off than we were during the last days of Mugabe. People are more important than politics sir.
