The secretary-general of the Organisation of Mozambican Women (WMO), Mariazinha Niquice, remarked yesterday that the country is an example in Africa when it comes to the inclusion and representation of women in government bodies, highlighting “advances” in the promotion of gender equality and relations.
“Mozambican women are present in all the organs of sovereignty and in that regard we are the best in the Africa region,” said Niquice, in an interview with the public radio station Rádio Moçambique.
The Assembly of the Republic (AR) of Mozambique, the Constitutional Council (CC), the Administrative Court (TA) and the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) are headed by women, which substantiates the progress that the gender policy followed in the country is bearing fruit, she added.
