SHEROES forum on African women in politics

 

A report on the SHEROES forum held in Dubai between 8-10 May 2016 quotes Malawi’s former President, Dr  Joyce Banda, keynote speaker and Dr Joice Mujuru, former Vice-President of Zimbabwe:

Dr Banda, during a discussion on ‘Women In Politics,’  touched on the need for African women to strategise and deal with the election processes at the grassroots level. She advised her compatriots to support and stand with each other. 
“If you go up the ladder to the top, don’t push down the ladder. Leave it there so others can climb up,” she asserted.
Dr Joice Mujuru, in her speech, stated that: “We must begin to work collectively to provide solutions to problems in our specific nations.”
