“We want to see more women standing and winning political positions. This is the first of the five workshops that we are going to have in 11 constituencies. 

“We are going to cover all 57 constituencies eventually,” she revealed, adding that their aim is to empower across political divide and advised women to put their political parties aside.

“You should think on ways on how you can help each other,” Ransome said.

representation in Parliament. Other countries like Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe amongst others are doing well compared to Botswana. Women movement should stand up for rights of women and advocate for laws that could benefit them.

“For example, women movement could have advocated that if specially elected MPs are going to be increased, then 50% or more should be women. But rather, women are not doing enough to advocate for themselves,” Salesman’s said.

He said surprisingly women are doing well in various structures of political parties, but the transformation is not there nationally.

Saleshando said his wishes are that one day a woman should become a candidate for presidency.
