Peter Mutharika

Malawi President Peter Mutharika has stressed the need to empower women saying the country will not progress without them.

The Malawi leader was speaking in Lilongwe when he opened the 9th Africa Region World Union of Catholic Women’s Organisation (WUCWO) conference.

He said that women empowerment is a fundamental principle of human equality granted by God and women are important in the development of any country.

“Women are important in the development of a country and there cannot be progress without women inclusion,” said Mutharika.

He added that since the population of women in the country is higher than that of men there is need to work with women if progress is to be achieved in the country.

Mutharika then welcomed the topics being discussed at the conference saying they are in tandem with global and national agendas.

The conference will focus on the implementation of the outcomes of the commission on the status of women, the sustainable development goals, the African Union Agenda 2063 “The Africa we want”, and the high level outcome on HIV and AIDS.

The topics to be discussed during the conference include the problem of street women, child trafficking in Africa, water and sanitation as well as climate change.
