  1. First of congratulations to the new Board members.
    However I do note the lack of adequate female representation on this board and would like to encourage Mr Chibamba to consider adequate representation in future.
    Do excuse me for I do not know if the board members were selected based on their industry experience or whether the positions were competitive. If competitive did we not have sufficient and quality female candidates?
    I believe that women too are capable of influencing policy etc.
