Some men in Zimbabwe are absolutely furious with the Chinese-made condoms as they are “too small in size”. David Parirenyatwa who is Zimbabwe HEALTH & Child Care minister has challenged local companies to proceed into condom production in a bid to sort out the concerns over the size of condoms imported from China.
The Minister at the launch of the Zimbabwe Private Sector HIV and Aids and Wellness (ZIPSHAW) co-ordinating board said, “We are promoting condoms, both male and female and the youth have now got a particular condom they like, but we do not manufacture them.
He also said adding that the private sector should team up in the fight against HIV and begin manufacturing drugs together with condoms, which are well suitable for the Zimbabwean people.
“If you want to be big business (private sector), please manufacture condoms (because) you import condoms from China, and some people complain they are too small, so you need to be able to have your own condoms,” he said.
