Part of Cecilia Khofi’s tasks as Miss Malawi is to advocate for reduction in population growth through engaging various stakeholders, a development that has put a smile on Speaker of Parliament Richard Msowoya.
After Khofi had appeared before Parliamentarians on Wednesday, Msowoya applauded the beauty queen’s efforts in bringing down rapid population growth in the country.
“This dialogue should continue, the fact that she is engaging various stakeholders who are to carry the message to other people, as we make a way to breakthrough to development,” said Msowoya.
Msowoya also expressed worry over the rapid population growth arguing it affects the quality of service delivery in Malawi.
On her part, Miss Malawi disclosed her readiness to go in constituencies to motivate girls so that they should not accept being married off at a young age.
Malawi’s population is reported to be growing at a fast rate, a development that has worried various stakeholders in the country.
The fast growing population is said to affect the quality of public services such as education and health.
