50-50 Agency Garners Support for Friday’s Demos


The 50-50 Campaign Management Agency is garnering more support for Friday’s demonstrations which are being championed by the Women’s Manifesto Movement.

The demonstrations are meant to push for the appointment of women in public positions and will take place in the cities of Lilongwe, Blantyre and Mzuzu.

Team Leader for the 50-50 Campaign Management Agency, Viwemi Chavula notes that appointment of women is a constitutional mandate which does not need pushing from other stakeholders.

Gender rights activists announced demonstrations over President Lazarus Chakwera’s failure to include more women in parastatal boards.

The organizations were dismayed by Chakwera’s sentiments who on Monday challenged women’s rights activists to produce a list of skilled women who qualify to be placed in parastatal boards.

Dr Chakwera who was responding to questions at a press conference to mark 100 days in the country’s highest office said he should be given more time to include more women on the positions in question.

However, the sentiments irked the organizations who have since described it as a lame excuse hence writing the Inspector General informing him of their plans to hold peaceful demonstrations on Friday October 9, 2020.
