This is very funny. The President and his Cabinet talks of gender equity and here we are just one woman. When shall Malawi leadership WALK THE TALK. Women are more productive and not just sex symbols or dancers. What is the impact of 50/50 . There are many educated well experienced women but being rejected. Shame Mr President.

The whole world, except Malawi, has gone Caree Diplomatic Service. Malawians, for how long is your Diplomatic Service going to remain Primitive.

I hope these political appointees will be backed up by professionals, mainly from your Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Malawi is shaming. As foreigners we do not understand.
