‘Church, NGOs must be accountable’


LUCY LUMBE, Livingstone
ACCOUNTABILITY is the responsibility of not only the Government, but also of the Church and civil society organisations, the governing party, the Patriotic Front (PF), has said.
The party’s deputy media director, Antonio Mwanza, says churches, civil society organisations and opposition political parties need to be accountable and contribute to promoting good governance.
He said this during a discussion forum organised by the Non-Governmental Organisations Coordinating Council (NGOCC) held here on Wednesday.
“Accountability is not only for the PF government but the civil society must also be accountable. For example, when you have a civil society that is hell-bent at damaging the image of its own country for the sake of donor funding, that is not accountability,” Mr Mwanza said.
