Speaking to Angop at the 4 de Fevereiro International Airport, the Zimbabwean senator expressed satisfaction with what she can observe and urged the member countries of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) to follow Angola's example in actions related to promotion policies, "a situation which satisfies the Parliamentary Forum".

Monica Mutsvangwa ends a two-day visit to Angola after launching the United Nations campaign, titled "They (men) for Them (women)", at a ceremony held Wednesday in the National Assembly (Parliament), and witnessed by its speaker, Fernando da Piedade Dias dos Santos, and MPs.

The vice-speaker of the SADC Parliamentary Forum said that all parliaments and governments in the region should work together towards this end, as the promotion of women is not only a question of human rights but also of development , so everything should start in parliaments.

"The more women in parliament, governments, offices and other areas, the more countries are developing," she said, adding that it was necessary to avoid situations of disparity in the education of African children, men and women.
