Banyenzaki said that girls should not be looked up as the source of wealth through bride price stating, that when educated, are the best and able leaders in the country.

“When a woman is educated and she is posted in any office be it government or private, you will never hear of any scandals like corruption or embezzlement of funds because it is difficult to bribe a woman,” Banyenzaki said.

He added that women are very useful in upbringing children emphasising, that scientifically, a child takes the highest percentage of the female
genes at birth thus should be treated with care.

The Minister said that the government is committed to helping women to improve their livelihoods through financial support and taking girl child education a first priority.
