Vice-President Inonge Wina says she has no intentions of vying for presidency.
Featuring on a BBC Focus on Africa television program in London, Tuesday, Vice-President Wina said she had no presidential ambitions whatsoever.
This comes at a time when Zambians are considering the possibility of having her as Head of State if President Edgar Lungu were to be impeached.
She told TV presenter Sophie Ikenye that she wanted to mentor other women into leadership as she had done her part.
“I think time has come for me to pass on the baton to the younger generation. We have done our part. It is important for us to groom other women, especially the young ones. And mentoring is one of the strategies we are using in Zambia ensure that we bring up new women who will be leaders our country. So count me in the mentoring sector not aspiring to be president,” Vice-President Wina said.
According to ZANIS, Vice-President Wina said she was content with her position and would continue focusing on her duties.
“This should not dump the spirit of those young women to be there (leadership positions). I think they have a lot to offer. And our (African) countries should realize that a leadership by a woman will means a lot for the development of Zambia and other countries,” said Vice-President Wina.
