According to the United Nations Headquarters, they identified President Mutharika for the appointment because of his commitment to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of women; ending child marriages; and gender based violence.

Meanwhile, State House press office has said Mutharika has accepted the appointment which is with effect from 1st June 2015.

HeForShe is a solidarity movement that calls upon men and boys to stand up against the persisting inequalities faced by women and girls globally.

The campaign strengthens the support for women’s rights as human rights by enlisting the support of men and exhorting them to put themselves forward as advocates for gender equality.

Recently, President Mutharika was also appointed Champion of Higher Education in Africa by the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture-RUFORUM.

Earlier in May he was also appointed to serve as a Member of the Leadership Council of the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, and the Grow African Partnership Initiative by the African Union Commission and NEPAD.

Joice Banda has held many of those eccolades. This is nothing to brag about its for those that have time to do such things. Look at Kenyata he does not waste time trying to get fame. Action speaks louder than words. You don;t need to submit your name for these positions which what most of these leaders do. Charity begins at home talk is cheap.

Good – as long as he understands when his plate cannot hold any more. We employed him to work at capital Hill 24/7. He must create the extra time that he needs to feed the additional responsibilities that he is accepting.
