Lilongwe, 2 May: In this interview, Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Welfare, Dr. Mary Shawa, strongly condemned the gender violence in all forms, including in the demeaning and sexist remarks levelled against aspiring female politicians in run up to the upcoming elections in May. “Nobody has the right castigate anybody in any form”. Shawa was speaking at the second SADC Gender Protocol@Work Summit that started earlier this week in Lilongwe, Malawi. This was a particularly important statement to make in light of the 5050 campaign and elections as well as the need for leaders and men in positions of power to encourage women’s advancement into decision-making positions to ensure and parity and equal participation.
