TOP STORY: Drama As Complaints Of Small Sized Condoms Dominate Debate In Parliament

Condoms are used during sexual intercourse and they help in cubing Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), HIV and unplanned pregnancies and this has helped people to stay safe in Uganda.

These come in two formats for men and women, they also come in different sizes to fit the different sized men in Uganda. They also come in two provisions, those for free which bear ‘Government of Uganda, Not for Sale’ and those which are sold in pharmacies, supermarkets and retail shops.


However, men in Bukomasimbi are in the news after their member of parliament Hon Kayemba Solo delivered their complaint on the floor of parliament which is turning out to be a matter of national importance.

According to Kayemba Solo, his electorates complained of how National Medical Stores (NMS) had delivered small sized condoms which couldn’t fit on their mega whoopers and in the end, these were burnt to since they were useless.

“I got a complaint that they brought condoms of small sizes which could not fit users. At the end of the day, they didn’t use them; they burnt them & I am sure some people lost their lives.”-Hon Kayemba told parliament.

This has dominated discussions with some other people adding to this voice that indeed some condoms are supplied in small sizes and this leaves out no means of people safeguarding themselves and end up taking risks.

In 2019, the then minister of Primary Health Care and Tororo women representative Sarah Opendi send shockwaves to Ugandans after she revealed that whoever used lifeguard condoms should get tested and two batches were released to the market before being approved.
