Mukazayire said, “Women have been on the frontline, they are among the leaders who have kept the COVID-19  prevalence lower and help reduce the spread of COVID-19; we are seeing it in UN leadership too. When women lead in government we see progress. If they are in the parliamentary, the country adopts more stringent climate change policy. Men are essential part of our society but special measures to get more women into leadership should be encouraged.”
