A Zanu-PF legislator has announced he donated sanitary pads to women and girls in his constituency, before proceeding to bash men for spending their incomes on beer and cigarettes while neglecting their their wives’ basic needs.
Killer Zivhu, the MP for Chivi South, made the revelation on social media. He indicated that through his Zivhu Foundation, he was going to donate free sanitary ware to almost every school in his constituency.
“I feel sorry for girls who have become a laughing stock to boys when they mess themselves at school and also ladies who mess themselves in public,” Zivhu said Sunday.
“Fathers and men must also make sure that their wives and girl children have pads or enough pads before they indulge in drinking beer and just get drunk, something with no value.
“I am doing this out of love as part of my philanthropic work. I am also an incumbent MP for the area and I feel I should play my part in making sure that the girl child retains her self-esteem through adequately preparing for her reproductive health challenges.”
Meanwhile, an online publication reports that Zivhu reckons his philanthropic activities were not very popular with some of his party colleagues baying for his blood for publicly suggesting that President Emmerson Mnangagwa should engage in dialogue with opposition MDC leader Nelson Chamisa.
“I know there are party functionaries out to frustrate me, but this will not stop me from addressing the plight of the downtrodden members of the society. I will keep giving to the less privileged in my constituency,” he told the publication.
Over the weekend, Zivhu was at Ruvanga Secondary School in his constituency where he donated over 300 pads to girls and female teachers.
The event saw male teachers also get free sanitary ware to give to their wives and girl children.
