Hilarious reactions after Minister complains Chinese condoms 'too small' for African men
The company is now planning on releasing condoms in various sizes and textures.
During an HIV/AIDS prevention event in Harare last week, David Parirenyatwa, Zimbabwe’s Minister of Health, said that a popular condom among youth is imported from China, but men often complain about the products being too small, according to local news.
“The southern African region has the highest incidence of HIV and we are promoting the use of condoms,” Parienyatwa said.
“Youths now have a particular condom that they like, but we don’t manufacture them. We import condoms from China and some men complain they are too small.”
He then called on local firms to start producing condoms so the country can stop relying on unsatisfactory imports.
Following the incident, Zhao Chuan, the chief executive of Beijing Daxiang and His Friends Technology Co., a Chinese condom manufacturer, told the South China Morning Post that his company is now planning on releasing contraception in various sizes and textures.
