It was in her statement on the occasion of the international day of women right celebration.

The celebration, she said, came in a context of democratic renewal following the popular insurrection during which Burkina women played a very great role.

“It would be unthinkable to undertake development action without women”, Minister Zongo said.

On the occasion of the International Women’s Day on Tuesday, hundreds of women gathered in front of the ruins of National Assembly.

In October 2014, rioters set fire to the National Assembly as parliamentarians were gearing to amend Constitution to enable the then head of State Blaise Compaore to stand for new term office. Enditem
