–The Nakonde District Women Association (DWA) is happy with the appointment of Nalolo Member of Parliament, Inonge Wina, as Republican Vice President.
Speaking on behalf of the Association, DWA chairperson, Queen Nawakwi, said her association is very happy with the appointment of Ms Wina.
Miss Nawakwi said this in an interview with Zambia News and Information Services (ZANIS) in Nakonde today.
The DWA Chairperson said the association is looking forward to see Ms Wina empowering women country wide in various sectors.
Ms Nawakwi, however, appealed to the Vice President to help support women in Nakonde as well as help the association curb early marriages in the district.
Ms Nawakwi said Nakonde District is one of the districts with a high number of early marriages and the association is trying to help reduce this number through sensitisation.
Ms Wina, who was appointed yesterday by President Edgar Lungu, becomes the first female Vice President in Zambia.
