Mansa Central Member of Parliament Chitalu Chilufya has urged women in the country to continue supporting President Edgar Lungu.

Dr. Chilufya observes that President Lungu has demonstrated that he has a heart for women through the various women programmes which Government has put in place.

He says the country has seen more women in high positions in Government which is a clear demonstration of the good will from the President.

Dr. Chilufya says in all the empowerment programs which are being implemented across the country, women are included as the Government fully understands that they are important partners in national development.

He was speaking when he addressed women in his constituency.

Dr. Chilufya noted that apart from empowerment programs for women in the country, Government has also put in place programs aimed at supporting girl child education.

Meanwhile, Dr. Chilufya disclosed that a certain percentage of the Constituency Development Fund -CDF- in his Constituency will be going towards supporting girls in education.

Zambia on Monday commemorated the international Women’s day under the theme: “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 World”.
