Association of Non-Governmental Organisations in Zimbabwe (NANGO)
Extracted from Issue 3, Zim-NGO Voice
March 21, 2005
It has come
to the attention of NANGO that there have been reports of increased
surveillance of NGOs by people believed to be state agents, at the
back of an announcement by Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare
Minister, Paul Mangwana, that a Committee has been set up to probe
people being followed, unidentified vehicles being parked around
the vicinity of offices of NGOs, and NGOs being approached by strangers
and asked intrusive questions about their personal lives and
NGOs should therefore improve their security awareness and take
measures to minimise their exposure to being isolated and subjected
to danger. This involves avoiding cooperation with strangers- whose
personal and work details have not been disclosed to your satisfaction
- without legal representation.
May you please report any suspicious developments to NANGO through
our hotline on Tel 04- 732612. You are also free to contact NANGO
Lawyers on the following numbers 091257247, 011209468, 011619747.
