Following a heated debate on social media regarding condoms at parliament, members of the house have resolved to return the donation they received from Aids Health Foundation (AHF).
A local media houses carried out a story that members of parliament uses 10, 000 condoms per month hence they need more of them at the house, a development which raised questions by most Malawians on social media.
Reacting to the development, Deputy Speaker of the house Madalitso Kazombo demanded an apology from media houses over the matter arguing that it has injured their image and public perception hence the decision.
Speaking when he was returning the donation, Leader of the House said as legislators they donâ€™t want condoms but what they want are masks.
He added that as MPs they can afford to buy condoms when they want because they have money.
According to Chimwendo, the condoms should be donated to people who cannot manage to buy condoms
Chimwendo also disclosed that as members of Parliament they are dismayed by the report saying they use 10,000 condoms per month.
Chimwendo said this is a total lie since MPs are people with integrity and they are role models, therefore itâ€™s not true that they do use such an amount of condoms.
During the event, Chimwendo was withÂ Â Democratic Progressive Party Chief Whip Vuwa Kaunda.
Representatives from the Aids Health Foundation were also at the press briefing to take back the condoms
