Orientation Workshop for Traditional Leaders in Zomba

Training workshop for traditional leaders on the new land law in Malawi

The workshop introduced traditional leaders to the legal framework for women’s land ownership rights. The first part was a historical overview to land law reform in Malawi. The second session covered critical aspects of the newly enacted land law.

Details

The workshop was aimed at sensitizing traditional leaders on the new land law so that in settling land disputes, traditional authorities increasingly consider the codified law and strengthen the position of women in issues of land use and land ownership.

The workshop targeted 35 traditional leaders serving as Village Headmen/women (VH) and Group Village Headmen/women (GVH) from the catchment areas of three Traditional Authorities (TAs) namely Kuntumanje, Malemia and Nkagula. These T/As form part of the WoLREC impact areas for their projects. In practice, 43 participants attended, comprising 25 males and 18 females. Participants included the community drama group, which performed during the workshop, the staff from Chancellor College community radio who covered the event live and other journalists from the local media outlets.
