The story of a governor based in Mbayani, who won several prizes in the Hello Sweetie Chishango Promotion by PSI, is inspiring.
For some, they would look at the prizes as the ultimate reward for his consistent use of Chishango condoms while others would look at this man as a shining example of how politicians should contribute to their communities using the knowledge they have.
Politicians are usually immersed into the affairs of political parties forgetting that their greater role is messenger of the people they serve.
The governor in Mbayani has been an HIV coordinator since 2003 and some of the programmes dwell on the use of condoms to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections.
Although his use of condoms is for family planning reasons, the fact that he uses condoms testifies that he does not only preach to his people about condoms but that condoms can be used for several reasons.
We hear of people who are ashamed of buying condoms from shops because they are either leaders of the church or respected men who cannot sink so low to buy the item.
We believe having one in the pocket is an honourable thing than pretend to be smart while practising unprotected sex. We hail the governor in Mbayani for leading by example.
