The 5th CWP Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians Africa Region Conference held a spectacular Gala Dinner evening at the ICC. This event, including the conferences, brought together an esteemed group of people who selectively had a wealth of vision and knowledge to help map the way forward for all Legislatures. The evening including several speakers who addressed issues such as eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, achieving universal primary education, promoting gender equality and empowering women, reducing child mortality, improving maternal health, ensuring environmental sustainability and combating HIV and AIDS, malaria and other diseases. Guests and delegates were wowed by the beautiful dancers and artistes, who performed in colorful traditional attire. Well done to the Eastern Cape Provincial Legislature for hosting this productive 4 day event. I have no doubt that it was a memorable one for all delegates.
