Madam Chakwera urged women to have a say in the governance of the country, saying they bring new ideas and have unique perspectives.

“Go and take part in all political processes because we do not want you to be crying about this and  that and yet you were just spectators, ” she said.

She urged women to register in their large numbers in the voters roll so that they are able to vote.

Madam Chakwera who was accompanied by Abida Mia, the wife of MCP Vice President Sidik Mia, promised to do every thing possible to support the women.

“We want you to be independent economically so that you are able to make independent decision politically.”

So, where is Abiti Kabwila in the crowd. Poor Jessie; getting sidelined again?
Is she back in hibernation? … and did oChakwera forgive her or NOT?

That’s commendable Madam Chakwera. At least we are now assured of a mature first lady come May next year.
