Full List: Government Suspends Nicholas Opio’s Chapter Four, CCEDU, 53 Other NGOs In Uganda

The government has indefinitely suspended the operation of Nicholas Opiyo’s Chapter Four, Citizens Coalition for Electoral Democracy in Uganda (CCEDU) and other non-government organizations NGOs. The Ministry of Internal affairs claims the Human rights and Election monitoring NGOs did not file annual returns and audited books of accounts.

The ministry explains that the NGO board noted with great concern the increasing fraudulent practices involving some NGOs and members of the general public. It says some unscrupulous individuals are taking the advantage of the NGO sector to defraud their stakeholders.

Through his Twitter account, Laywer Opiyo reacted to the development saying; “The National Bureau for NGOs has notified us of the indefinite suspension of the permit of Chapter Four for what they term failure to file returns and disclosing our sources of funding. We are working with the authorities to clarify what we believe is a misunderstanding.”

The National Bureau for NGO, which is mandated to register, regulate, monitor, inspect, coordinate and oversee all NGO operations in the country, announced the halting of activities of the affected NGOs on Friday morning saying they failed to comply with the laid down doctrines.

“As a result of monitoring and investigation functions the NGO Bureau has found that 54 NGOs are non-compliant with the NGO Act 2016,” said part of the statement.

The NGO Bureau said it has established that 23 NGOs are operating with expired permits, 15 NGOs have failed to file annual returns and audited books of accounts while 16 NGOs are operating without registering with the NGO Bureau.
