“Zambia We Want” Campaign

I found an article earlier today about a campaign being spearheaded by the non-profit group, Women for Change Zambia. The intent is to “create a charter that will demand more of politicians in alleviating poverty and joblessness when they come into office after the coming national elections.”
There is also a call for political parties to adopt more female candidates in the upcoming general elections.  
As the author notes though, the charter hasn’t been drafted yet and at this late date one has to wonder what its impact will be when it is released. However, credit is due to them for the work they are currently doing gathering support in different areas around the country. I’ll do some digging to gather more information.
