Government says Zambia has made strides in various aspects of governance to ensure that women get the required support.
Eastern Province Deputy Permanent Secretary Patrick Mwanawasa said this during this year’s Africa Public Service Day in Chipata.
He indicated that Government is determined and committed to ensuring that many women are elevated to key decision making positions in the public service.
Mr Mwanawasa says this has been demonstrated by President Edgar Lungu who has continued to appoint women in key decision making positions.
He says that for the past 50 years that Zambia has been independent, it is the first time that Zambia has a female vice president and inspector general of police.
Mr. Mwanawasa says women should expect more appointments to key positions as government is determined to do everything possible to enhance women’s prosperity even in homes and the nation at large.
He says government will also continue enhancing women’s access to cost-effective goods and services through implementation of innovative and good programmes.
Mr. Mwanawasa assured civil servants that government will ensure that the public has access to information on various women’s empowerment programmes that are available in the public service.
