The Zambia National Women’s lobby (ZNWL) has added its voice in condemning the dismissal of Alfridah Kansembe as home affairs Deputy Minister.

The Non Governmental Organization Coordinating Council (NGOCC) has already described the dismissal of Ms. Kansembe as a blow to the fight for a 50-50 representation in decision making positions.

And Women’s lobby chairperson Beauty Katebe has told Qfm news in an interview that it is also unfortunate that the country is now loosing women representation in parliament.

Ms. Katebe says it is further sad that this had to happen when the women effectively require more numbers in decision making positions in the country.

She has however advised that it is important that regulations of questioning the head of state on certain decision he makes are put in place so as to allow questions when it comes to hiring and firing
