The Foundation for Democratic Process (FODEP) has added its voice to NGOs condemning Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda’s disparaging remarks that people that have formed Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) have failed in life.

FODEP Executive Director MacDonald Chipenzi says it is clear that the Minister does not know what he was talking about.

Mr. Chipenzi says such sentiments are not expected to come from a Minister who has been in government for so long and understands the role of the NGOs in the country.

He points out that the Minister of Finance should know that an organization like FODEP was formed by quite honorable and respectable individuals who up to now government still looks up to for assistance in one way or another.
