Civil society calls for formal platform with government

Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) have called for the establishment of a formal platform for interaction with the government to improve efficiency and bring about development to the majority Tanzanians.

The non-state actors have as well appealed to the state to avail them with funds from the local sources to implement development initiatives on the backdrop of reduced funding from development partners.

The call was made in Dar es Salaam by the Director of HAKIARDHI, Mr. Yefred Myezi, while moving a vote of thanks on behalf of CSOs during the 13th CSOs Annual Forum organized by the Foundation for Civil Society (FCS).

Mr. Myezi cited the existing platform between the private sector and the government, which has boosted both local and foreign investments in the country.

“Through forums such as the Tanzania National Business Council (TNBC) and Tanzania Private Sector Foundation (TPSF), there have been remarkable relations between the state and the private sector,” he explained.

He was thus of a view that it was a high time such round table was established to improve the links between the CSOs and the state.

“Through such arrangement the allegedly mistrust that currently exists between the two parties will be addressed amicably,” he noted.

Speaking of the formal platform with government during the opening speech, the guest of honor Ms. Sihaba Nkinga, the Permanent Secretary from the Ministry of Community Development, Gender and Children said: “I am taking this opportunity to plead for accountability and transparency to stakeholders that you work with such as the citizens, government as well as the development partners. By doing so you will consolidate trust with the people whom you serve as well as enhancing partnership with the government.”
