Gender minister Sara Sayifwanda says the increasing number of women involved in drug trafficking is a disgrace and an embarrassment to the nation.
Ms. Sayifwanda says drug trafficking is not the only option women can resort to when there are a lot of businesses they can venture into.
Speaking in an interview with QFM, Ms. Sayifwanda challenged women in the country to emulate her steps in life and conduct good businesses that will earn them the needed respect as women.
Ms. Sayifwanda says she is not happy with the growing trend of women involvement in drug trafficking adding that the methods being used to conceal drugs are dangerous to their health.
She has advised women to utilize the women empowerment funds being provided by government instead of venturing in illegal activities just to make quick money.
