VP Emmerson Mnangagwa has infuriated women when he professed ignorance on the use of sanitary pads.
Mnangagwa was responding to questions on the desperate situation facing female prisoners who did not have the pads. “I have never heard female prisoners saying they are not given sanitary wear,” he said in Parliament today, joking that he had never seen one in his life.
MDC MP Ronia Bunjira then produced a sanitary pad to show the VP. She threw it at him. Mnangagwa is said to have picked it up and thanked Bunjira but joked that she should have demonstrated how it was worn.
