The past queen of England, Queen Elizabeth was a rare kind because there was no male successor from her father.
She ruled with grace ,elegance and above all, wisdom.
In Africa, it is hardly done , not that there aren't cases of such but it is hardly experienced.
People regard women as the weaker vessels so they see no reason a woman should control subjects when she should be manning the affairs of the home.
They regard her as being too fragile to
to handle tough situations of a kingdom or town.
On the other hand ,there are some who support such rulership because they believe that women are wise and sensitive in their dealings with humans and as good home managers , they will be able to handle the affairs of the throne and preserve rather than neglect the cultural heritage passed down by her predecessors.
Some also believe that the reign of a woman ruler will likey bring more favours , good opportunities and cooperation than if it was a man who ruled.
If you have experienced the reign of a female traditional ruler, what are your thoughts?
Do let us know.

Actually is from the society norms that brought about such kind of mindset though. Women are very emotional than men and most of them lacks some natural calmness of a fact.
But if any female is capable of being more emotional and more calm to threats. Then she can be capable of ruling not just traditionally but also nationwide.

There is nothing wrong if a woman rules traditionally. It's because of the way things have been from the ages past that's why you see most things are the way you see it.
But as of now things have started changing little by little because every body is now wise. So there is nothing wrong there.

There nothing bad in that a female can also rule traditional since there are some steps to take befor she will be given the sit.
Female like that are always strong enough to perform the task.

Why not? Females should be allowed to rule in the country because females are also human beings and no one should make them feel inferior because we see all equal before the law. We have a female that has the heart of a man and they are ready to face any obstacles trying to deal with their people.
Females also have good and caring hearts unlike some men who are hard-hearted and the female is more caring because it is the way the Lord has built our hearts to be. So that attribute will make us rule well because we are built to be good leaders.

I feel the leadership position should not be gender based, therefore it should be open to all genders.
Lately I see such heavy inclusion in the national and state political engagements.
Women also have something to offer. So if anyone's effectiveness can be seen to be then that person should be given a go ahead at leadership position

We just try to complicate things in Africa we usually believe in oracle so if she was been chosen by the oracle say can.
There is not bigdeal in that the process to be in that position can be because of iheritant or family cultural heritage system.
