Rwanda has become the second African nation to announce a gender-balanced Cabinet with 50 percent of its members women.
The east African nation announced that women now make up half of the slimmed-down 26-seat Cabinet.
“A higher number of women in decision-making roles have led to a decrease in gender discrimination and gender-based crimes,” Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame has said.
The country joins Ethiopia that also reshuffled it’s cabinet early this week giving 10 out of the 20 Positions to women.
“Our women ministers will disprove the old adage that women can’t lead,” Prime Minister Abiy Mohamed told parliament.
The two countries go down in history as the pioneers of more inclusive and gender-balanced governments.
