The Act governing the NGOs of Zanzibar was outdated and no longer in line with Zanzibar's 2009 NGO policy. ANGOZA, being the national umbrella organisation serving the Zanzibar NGO community, assumed responsibility for organising a series of consultations about the new draft law that had already been prepared. The aim of this campaign was to seek the advice and opinion of NGOs, which are key stakeholders.
