Minister for ethics and Integrity, Miria Matembe, has advised women to take up leadership positions so as to promote good governance.
Matembe was speaking at Areba Hotel in Entebbe during the democracy camp for university female students meant to encourage them to aspire for leadership positions in the communities they live in.
The democracy camp aimed at mentoring young women into leadership was organized by the Centre for Women in Governance and it attracted students from Bugema University, Uganda Christian University and Kyambogo University.
Matembe emphasized that young women should take central role in leadership in order to promote good governance and development.
“Leadership and development in the modern world cannot be left to men alone. Women involvement is a must for good governance, social and economic welfare for citizens,” Matembe said.
She said both women and men should equally participate in the decision making process in the country at all levels. She told students that they can’t afford to be left behind in influencing governance agenda in the country.
She noticed that women count and are capable of making decisions at council level, family, regarding food security and constitutional matters.
