HIV:Senator wants women to stop bathing

HIV:Senator wants women to stop bathing thumbnail

An MDC-T senator, Morgan Femai, has sparked outrage after he suggested that women should stop bathing as usual and dress shabily in order to curb the spread of deadly HIV/AIDS infections.
The MDC-T senator for Chikomo, said his prescription was necessary to help curb the spread of HIV/AIDS because men were finding it difficult to resist attractive and well-dressed women.

“What I propose is that the government should come up with a law that compels women to have their heads clean-shaven like what the Apostolic sects do,” Femai said Friday while addressing a parliamentary HIV awareness workshop in Kadoma.

MDC-T Senator demands women should bath less

“They should also not bath because that is what has caused all these problems (spread of HIV).”
Femai also recommended circumcision for women – becoming the latest in a long line of MDC-T lawmakers who have pushed forward bizarre proposals about how to curb the spread of HIV.

“Women have got more moisture in their organs as compared to men, so there is need to research how to deal with that moisture because it is conducive for bacteria breeding. There should be a way o suck out that moisture,” he said in comments insinuating that the virus which causes Aids breeds better in women than men.

Zimbabwe is one of the countries worst affected by HIV/Aids but has seen a decline in new infections year-on-year over the last decade.

The MDC-T party has fallen to major controversy following a string of suggestions to curb HIV transmissions. Another MDC-T Senator for Matobo, Sithembile Mlotshwa, recently suggested that Zimbabweans must be limited to one sexual encounter per month. Men, she said, should be administered a drug that reduces their libido. During a seperate debate, she asked the government to provide prisoners with “sex gadgets” to discourage homosexual activity.

Another MDC-T legislator, Thabitha Khumalo, is also campaigning for the legalisation of prostitution claiming this could help the fight against AIDS. She recently told ZimEye that prostitutes should be called pleasure managers rather than the former.

    Perhaps it’s a lot to do with the name “MORGAN” These are the rubbishes that run our country. What nonsence, is he implying that zim women are the most irresistable women in the world? I think not—more likely it’s to do with our men who lack self control at the same time refusing to use condoms. So?

    Tete Vaneshanje, I just knew it all this while you are a CIO. I could tell by your flirting tones every week. Havijng been trained in forensic psychology, it did not take me 2 hours to sniff your out!

    My Rorschach test of you did not even last 30 minutes and th algorithms were so smooth to implement.

    Instead of attacking President Tsvangirai, Why don’t you also come out into the open and declare your political allegiance? You are such a disgradec to the generality of women worldwide, such a poisonous tongue and no socpe of direction at all. Mandinyadzisa Tete, ah!

    what… …HIV is a physical manifestation of disempowerment,and the reason Zimbabwe has a high HIV rate is because so many people are disempowered, scared and in survival mode. So the answer is not to go backwards and disempower (particularly women) further, but inform educate and share esoteric information which allows people to take charge of their health and really know how powerful they are.

    Ha ha ha!

    So Zuma says bath?
    And Femai says not to bathe?

    It is all so confusing.
    Who is right? lol

    Instead of making unfortunate and ridiculous proposals, Femai and the rest of the MDC-Traitors should become educated to the fact that the pale ************evils (to whom the traitors prostitute themselves for a few pieces of euro silver) ARE PRIMARILY responsible for the white man’s HIV weapon being so successful in decimating African populations.

    The disruption and destruction of African societies by the criminal euro invaders, have caused too many Africans to forget or ignore the wise African Cultural Structures for selecting a healthy and worthy mate.

    As a result of the unfortunate lapse in judgment, too many Africans have began to mate wildly without much thought, and without the Traditional Planning with the assistance of EXPERIENCED elders in the family.

    Promiscuity IS NOT a virtue!
    And the wise African Ancestors took this fact into account during ‘rites of passage’ for the young people.

    Promiscuity IS AN ADDICTION!
    And ALL addictions eventually lead to disease and early death!

    The ‘old ways’ of the wise Ancestors in selecting proper mates, MUST be remembered, recalled, re-enlivened and MUST be re-instituted, so that Africans can escape the scourge of the wicked white man’s HIV WEAPON, and other nasty biological and behavioral diseases.

    Mr senator
    hiv virus is not found in the body fluid but in the blood. What is needed is educating yo pple some means to curb its spreading other than abstaining from bathing which will contradict hygiene preached in hospitals.

    There are no words that can adequately describe the ignorance of MR. Femani. It is a pity that his imbecilic views are even allowed to be part of the conversation on this critical matter of public health.

    The ignorance is appalling. HIV & AIDS has been around for almost 40 years, do they not realize? Look not to backwards old ideas, look instead to medical advances and science. And use condoms, for fuchs sake.
