“For us as young men and women I think we are ready to add value to the development of this country. We have escorted a lot of Presidents to State House and after using us immediately they are elected to the most powerful office we remain at the gets and whatever contribution we made they forgot,” he said.

He said for a long time women have been taken to be mothers and those who take care of the needs of homes but that the PF has proved that women are also capable of effectively participating in running the affairs of the country.
