IN YEARS PAST, WE'VE SEEN THREE OR FOUR DIFFERENT SECTORS GIVEN TO ON MINISTER TO MANAGE AND VERY LITTLE OR NOTHING GETS DONE. THESE MINISTRIES ARE WHAT I CALL SPECIALIZATION. IF AT THE END OF THE DAY THEY CAN PERFORM VERY WELL TO MAKE THE ECONOMY MOVE FORWARD, WHY NOT? OF COURSE, IT WILL BE A WASTE IF THEY FAIL.

where did you learn that gender means gay rights? No, it isn't about gay rights, but about issues relating the differences in our treatment of persons based on their sex, i.e. boy or girl, male or female. The ministry is about ensuring that we eliminate socio-economic differences and discrimination that emanate from that differential treatment. I hope this little summary helps you.
