NGOs Urged to Engage MPs

Zambia’s CLAGHRGMCA asks NGOs to ensure MPs are engaged in all planning activities when drafting child marriage laws in that country

Zambia’s Committee on Legal Affairs, Governance, Human Rights, Gender Matters and Child Affairs (CLAGHRGMCA) has asked non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to ensure members of Parliament (MPs) are engaged in all planning activities when drafting child marriage laws in that country.

Kabwe Central MP, James Kapyanga, points out that, “MPs can also get involved in the fight on ending child marriages, especially in the drafting and discussions of the draft laws instead of waiting for these draft pieces of legislation to come to Parliament”.

Kapyanga explains that MPs are ready to use the platform accorded to them as elected representatives in Parliament to debate on matters related to the welfare of children and ending child marriage.
