CIVIL society and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) converged in Bulawayo yesterday at the beginning of a three-day conference to discuss strategies of how to engage the new Zanu PF administration following its resounding July 31 general elections win.
Most civil society and NGOs have widely been perceived by Zanu PF as appendages of the West seeking to effect regime change, despite constant denials.
The gathering runs under the theme “Zimbabwe: Present Realities and Future Prospects” and is being attended by civil society organisations, NGOs, government officials and academics.
