Ethiopia bans NGOs

(Feb 18, 2013, The Africa report)--Ethiopia bans NGOs 

Ethiopia on Friday banned three civic organisations accusing them of doing 'illegal religious activities.'The ban came at a time when Ethiopian muslims are protesting against perceived government interference in their activities.

No further details were made available by the government on the alleged illegal activities that led to the ban. Observers fear the latest move by the government would spark protests by muslims in the Horn of Africa country.

One Euro, Islamic Cultural and Research Center and Gohe Child, Youth and Women Development were affected by the ban.

 Ethiopia has banned a number of non governmental organisations since it introduced the Civic Organisations Law two years ago. Read more the original article on The Africa report »
