While the former politician and minister has worked for over 30 years in different capacities, it is shocking that the government continues to place responsibilities on ageing people while a bunch of educated, agile and more active brains are ignored.

This raise doubts to the president’s continues reminder that youths are the future of the country.

Her appointment remains a talk on social media. Why should an ageing and incapacitated woman with such brilliant background not be allowed to rest after years of service?
