    #3 Sindiwe wa MCP. Timakudziwa kale. Even with your fake name, we know you by source and place of residence.

  9. The issue is not gender but someone who is capable whether male or female but qualified for any particular post or position can go for it not gender. There are a lot of capable women who can work in different spheres of our societies but the fact remains that women are not leaders.

    It would have been interesting to have been told something about her achievements, political platform, and plans for Zomba. Regrettably, it seems that the only detail deemed significant is her gender.
