As prices of basic goods and commodities continue to soar, women's organisations have raised concern over the cost of sanitary wear. Shamwari Yemwanasikana director, Mrs Ekenia Chifamba called on government to avail foreign currency for the importation of raw materials used to manufacture sanitary wear, as well as ensuring its duty-free importation.
Meanwhile, Farai Family products company sales and marketing manager Mr Paddington Mupfururirwa said the company has not increased the price of sanitary wear, despite introduction of the two percent tax and urged retailers to be considerate of the plight of women.
