Minister of Women Affairs Nyasha Chikwinya has said that all the high paying jobs at the women’s bank will be reserved for women. Men will only be employed as general hands and in other menial capacities. Addressing Senators last week, Chikwinya said:

On that issue, we are quite flexible because we have males who are doing the general work such as cleaning,

The issue of employment is where we use equal opportunity of 50:50 but we want it to come in as a statute. Once the 50:50 rule becomes a statute, it will no longer be for women only.

Section 17 provides for gender balance.  We are going to take it to the National Assembly and bring it here and once it is passed, you can get the menial jobs because for high posts, I think women will be heading.
