​Women should head some sectors: Gure

​Women should be appointed to head some of the sectors in the district administration, says Rigo MP Lekwa Gure.

He pointed this out during his transitional brief recently at Kwikila town, the heart of Rigo district.

During the event, the MP and his wife Vavine noted that most of the presenters (coordinators/sectoral heads) that day were men, with the exception of only one woman.

“Here we are talking about gender equity. Perhaps in the district administration, we should look at some of the positions to have women as the head of those sectors,” says MP Gure.

“A very good example would be the community development area; women excel in certain areas so we should consider that in the structure of our district administration.”

After receiving the administration’s reports, the newly-elected MP said a stock take of their financial status will be carried out.

“We normally inherit something that is not of our making. Therefore I need to know that before we move forward into the future.”

Furthermore, an update of their inventory, equipment and assets will be conducted.

The people of Rigo should expect changes in the coming months.
