Protesters block NASS gate over NGO bill
A coalition of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) besieged the National Assembly, on Wednesday, to protest the passage of the controversial ‘NGO bill’.
They armed with play cards with all manner inscription to register their grievances over the bill. The protesters forced the security men lock up the main gate of the National Assembly, thus forcing workers to either pass through the back gate or through the gate of the Secretary to Government’s office.
The House of Representatives committee on civil society organisations and development partners is currently holding a public hearing on the bill.
The protesters had converged at the Unity Fountain from where they marched down to the National Assembly entrance gate.
