I’m faithful to my condom!
AT the Games Village of the 10th All Africa Games on-going in Maputo stood this giant sign with inscription ‘Pleasure! I’m faithful to my condom’. The banner flutters in the air and creates a beauty at the entrance of the Games Village.
Thousands of athletes go through admiring it. The message is clear. Condom is the way out. Many who have fingered sports as one of the major areas through which people spread the virus are forewarning athletes.
The beautiful lasses who trot around with dresses and shots that leave little for imagination lead many into temptation. To avoid asking for forgiveness of our trespasses, the sign becomes necessary.
For those who cannot abstain like us, the condom becomes the umbrella of hope. With the high cost of living here, the bevy of beauties answer even when you cough or clear your throat.
But then, A Unicef report posted on its website a few months ago says HIV/Aids is the country’s greatest single threat to the well-being of children and women and to the development of the country as a whole. The report says this development has seen the soaring in numbers of child and maternal mortality rates, increased number of orphaned children as well as young girls joining the sex industry.
It is further estimated that there are 600 new infections per day with 25 percent of the new cases recorded among children aged 0-18 years. Frightening! These figures will hit the roof top after the All Africa Games. Their beautiful girls are on the loose.
The other day I jokingly asked my friend; “what if the condom is proved not to stop the deadly virus? He shouted, “Ah! Why do you always allow your mind to think of evil things. That will be catastrophic”, he yelled. This is enough to make one behave and come home in one piece.
