why are politicians so engrossed in matters of sanitory pads?


By “‘Godfrey Nsubuga’ via Ugandans at Heart (UAH)

why are politicians so engrossed in matters of sanitory pads while ignoring the fact that these kids run on empty stomachs from morning to evening at school with teachers equally hopeless seeking solace in kaveras of kitoko because of poor and sometimes no pay. Why are our good no nosense ladies like Matembe not taking this one up. I can tell with 70% certainity that these good ladies like Matembe, Olive Nantubwe, E. Madra and lousy Speci could have used their first sanitory pad when above 18. so how did they manage their lady days then? and they did go to school. There is an affordable solution in these grown up and educated ladies that can prove enormously helpful to Ugandans, why arent they talking today? The talk of pads has been taken on theoretical grounds by those whose job is to write papers and proposals for a living; these want to scoop billions and buy pads for millions. If there is less/ no money, we must feed children healthy and then address ”messes” in a fancy way if need be and not ”messes” before food. How many women digging the farm land in Bukunja are Using pads? very few yet there ”messes” come normally. These TV stunts of girls Using leaves and fibres is hogwash designed to alarm TV audience. What am saying is, the PAD is not the only thing that works during those days and should not be amplified beyond the key factors killing education; teacher motivation and training, teaching aides, feeding at school. the most affected girls come from rural areas and the mothers there are well versed with alternatives that work in different fabrics. All primary girls come from homes with mothers still going through ”messes”, how do mothers do it and can not tell their kids
