The tempo in Parliament was raised to interesting levels during this weeks’ questions without notice session when female parliamentarians took Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Minister, Emmerson Mnangagwa through some sanitary ware lessons.
The question posed to Mnangagwa, who is also the Vice President, was on female prisoners failing to access sanitary ware.
“What is government policy on availing sanitary ware to female prisoners,” asked Ms Priscilla Misirahirabwi Mushonga.
Mnangagwa did agree and alluded to the fact that while he understood the necessity of availing sanitary ware to female prisoners, his macho side might not really comprehend the matter.
“If it is a necessity, it must be provided,” said Mnangagwa.
The highlight moment came when the women parliamentarians not only displayed a sample of a sanitary pad but when the minister also hit back on how it can be used.
Meanwhile, Mnangagwa also told parliament that his ministry has finished realigning the new Electoral Act, adding that 11 bills are set to be tabled before the house this Thursday.
