WOLREC Challenges Female Aspirants

Women Legal Resource Centre (WOLREC) has challenged women aspiring Councillors to be visible in their communities in order to catch the attention of many voters.

Project Manager for Hivos Women Empowered for Leadership Program, Ireen Tisungane Ntonga said these sentiments in a review meeting where 30 aspiring women were trained on campaign management.

Ntonga said women need to position themselves strategically so that they are seen as part and parcel of the community.

“Aspirants should have solid campaign teams that should manage their activities on the ground,” Ntonga said.

She advised the women to have sound manifestos which show that they will deliver positive change to people in their areas.

UDF aspirant for Dinde Ward Mary Ross commended WOLREC for organizing the review meeting saying “it has empowered women with skills to articulate issues that would help them to win elections.”

Ross asked other organizations to empower female aspirants and urged the women to be active.
