Mashonaland Central provincial councillor Tonderai Samhu challenged young women in the province to embrace devolution saying it has since brought deals to them.

Speaking at a devolution provincial policy conference organized by Institute for Young Women Development (IYWD) in Bindura yesterday Samhu said young women should benefit from devolution.

"Young women should benefit in devolution this is a program that has brought deals for you, as you heard mining industry is calling for women to join the sector the ministry of Women affairs is funding women some in the cross boader trading and other small and medium enterprise hence embrace devolution,"he said.

However, young women bemoaned monopoly in the women affairs department by government officials or senior ladies.

"We are being subotaged by the ministry of women affairs as they are giving priority to government officials or senior ladies at the expense of young women," lamented IYWD chairperson Vimbai Mukau.

Officials from Women affairs promised to look into the matter and assist young women.
