CCJP Lilongwe governance officer Mwai Sandram said women aremore trustworthy in handling public funds than their male counterparts.

In an interview on Friday on the sidelines of a series of community mass meetings seeking to introduce female aspirants to their respective communities, Sandram said female politicians have shown that they are capable of delivering if given a chance.

He cited Mulanje West parliamentarian Patricia Kaliati who made headlines for accounting for Constituency Development Fund better than any other legislator, as a true reflection of what women can do if voted into power.

“It has been revealed that women are better at managing public resources than their male counterparts,” he said.

In her remarks, Liwadzi Ward shadow councillor Alena Pelete thanked CCJP for championing the advocacy.

CCJP is implementing the Malawi Electoral Cycle Support (Meccs) Project   with support from UN-Women and the Episcopal Conference of Malawi.
