The PF has continued threatening NGOS with deregisteration if they don’t comply with new PF requirements to be under a PF body.
The latest threats to NGOs say they would be deregistered within the next 30 days.
But Foundation for Democratic Process has told the PF to go to hell.
FODEP director Mcdonald Chipenzi has this to say after receiving the threatening letter:
‘Just to assure all that FODEP is not interested in registering under the draconian Act and therefore ready to face the consequences in its fight for civil and political liberties in this country.
‘ We wish the ministry all the best of luck in its effort to decimate the NGOs from the earth of Zambia.’
‘if the motive is to divert us from demanding for a people driven constitution, then, they are in for a rude shock. The demand will continue whether registered or not but as Zambian citizens. We want a new constitution now.’
