Rumphi: A Mzuzu faith based organization,God Cares Rights Foundation, has challenged women to take advantage of the 50:50 Campaign by contesting for the leadership positions in the 2019 Tripartite Elections.

Speaking to journalists recently in Rumphi, Executive Director for God Cares Right Foundation, Agnes Tokatoka Mughogho said women aspirants for different political leadership positions should develop achievable manifestos so that they sail through the elections.

We will train all women aspirants in Rumphi on how to conduct issue based campaign to woo support from the electorate, said Mughogho.

She said the organization would, along the 50:50 Campaign, conduct community awareness meetings on gender based violence within the electoral cycle to ensure that women are not discriminated against and harassed.

We therefore appeal to political parties to level the playing field to ensure fair and violent free political campaign.

Political parties should create an enabling environment for women participation in the electoral process, explained Mughogho.
