Shock as senator calls for return of virginity tests

Keresencia Chabuka, the MDC-T senator for Mutare has called for the return of traditional methods of raising children and this includes virginity testing for girls. This is despite the fact that the virginity tests have been outlawed because they are a violation of women’s rights. Chabuka decried the loss of traditional values by Zimbabweans and urged chiefs to safeguard Zimbabwe’s culture.

Chabuka said:

During our time, we also had cases whereby girls would go for virginity tests and this would protect the girl child. Unfortunately, we have now done away with our culture and we are even saying the aunties and other sisters are witches. Therefore, they cannot take care of our children.

“We are now calling for the traditional leaders to come in and save the nation from this scourge. We have been saying churches are to blame, but we are the people who are living in the community.

I am also pleading with the aunts and sisters who we accuse of being witches and wizards but they are there to safeguard and protect our children
