Ministry rejects request to repeal law on NGOs

The Ministry of Interior has rejected a request by some 100 civil society organisations to repeal the Law on Associations and NGOs (Lango).

The ministry said the current Lango is in line with the Constitution and had gone through many rounds of consultation among relevant parties before it was approved by the National Assembly.

The rejection came after some 100 organisations released a joint statement demanding that the government amend some articles in the law.
