—-The Centre for Governance has commended President Edgar Lungu for appointing a female Vice President, saying the move has brought a balance at national level in leadership in terms of gender.
Centre for Governance president, Patrick Mnthanga, told ZANIS in an interview in Ndola today that the appointment of Ms Inonge Wina, who is Nalolo Member of Parliament, is historical for Zambia as she is the first female Vice President.
Mr Mnthanga said President Lungu has shown an all-inclusive government by appointing Ms Wina and that as an organisation it is confident that the newly-appointed female Vice President will contribute immensely to the country’s development.
He said the organisation is confident that Ms Wina will provide quality leadership that the country will appreciate.
Mr Mnthanga has since called on women in the country to take an active role in politics as it enhances the living standards of people in any nation.
Meanwhile, Kitwe Trauma Centre Director, Jraita Mutale, has also commended President Lungu for appointing a female Vice President for the country.
Ms Mutale described newly-appointed Vice President as a true leader who is focused and capable of delivering good leadership.
She, however, called on President Lungu to appoint more women who are able to perform in leadership positions.
Zambia’s Sixth President, Edgar Lungu, has appointed Ms Wina, who was Gender and Child Development Minister, to become the country’s first female Vice President.
