Open letter to the president of Zimbabwe
Published: 03 September 2018 (358 Views)
Dear honourable President (ED MNANGAGWA),

First of all I would like to say congratulations for winning the 2018 elections. Yes we were not pleased as youth of Zimbabwe but anywhere we don't have a choice but to accept it, we are hoping for a better Zimbabwe and people voted for you that means they trust you.

My name is Tracy Mpofu, I'm 24years old currently based in South Africa. Bornfrees "batsho njalo abadala because singazange siyibone impi yeNkululeko. Well on my side I can say we are not bornfrees because sizalelwe endlaleni sakhulela kiyo and we were forced to leave our families to look for green pastures outside the country.

I grew up in deep rural areas, eInsiza District in Filabusi. Lapho okungelamota khona or even imgwaqo, we were walking kilometres to reach amabusiness Centre kodwa ke it was happening maybe twice a year.I had no one when I was growing it was me, my siblings and my old grandmother owayengasahambi.

Everything was ok till I reached the stage of menstruation, I was a form 3 student eTshazi Secondary School, . I was shocked and traumatized since I didnt know what was happening to me. I told my grandmother and she congratulated me saying sengikhulile. Since we were poor we didn't have money to buy sanitary pads, ngakho ke wangifundisa their old way, kwakumele ngidabule an old soft t-shirt so that I can use it as ipad.

It wasn't easy going to school ngifake a soft clothe not pads, well I didn't know about amapads ngakho I had to make it work. It was during the exams ngahlala esitulweni for almost 2hours and I was on a heavy floor, it was my first time after all.Ngathi ngisukuma after the exams, ngasengingcolise isiketi and my chair, I didn't notice at all ngaze ngezwa sengihlekwa ngabafana emuva. I was so ammbarrased and wished ukuthi umhlaba ungiginye. They continued tiesing me,I cried a lot, till one of my friends borrowed me her jersey so that I can cover the messy. Ngathandela ijesi ngahle ngabaleka esikolo ngabuyela ekhaya. It wasn't easy at all to go back to school after ukuba yinhlekisa of the year. I missed ama exams wonke zaze zavalwa izikolo, yes my grandmother forced me to go to school but ngangifika endleleni ngicatshe ngingafiki esikolo.I failed my exams ngomnyaka lowo.

The reason why I'm sharing this story to you, yikuthi ngibonise amachallenges we face as young lady girls, challenges faced by less privileged families kumarural areas,  especially girls. Ngakho ke I'm pleading to you, on behalf of these innocent little girls out there, saying it's better to have free sanitary pads emaclinics and hospital than to have condoms.

Sex is by choice but menstruation is nature it is not by choice and you can't abstain it. Ngeke ukubalekele nxa sokufile, kunjengokufa if I can say. There are organisations esilawo and some individuals people who donate the little that they have trying raise money to buy pads so that we can donate to less privileged people emakhaya but, it's not enough at all. This thing is happening each and everyday and asifinyeleki kuwo wonke umntwana.

As you are building a better Zimbabwe please don't forget about a girl child out there, Can we have free sanitary pads at schools and hospitals, so that we can have better future leaders, so that bengasoke bahlukumezeke if that time of the month ifika.

I hope you will get this letter as soon possible, wishing you all the best in this journey called life, and praying to God so that He can give you wisdom as our leader, we want to come back home and have a better life.
Yimi ozithobileyo. ....

Tracy Mpofu
