The government has stepped up its campaign to stop the irregular sale of sex pills and unregistered bedroom performance concoctions in the country.
The spokesperson of the Medicines Control Authority of Zimbabwe (MCAZ), Shingai Gwatidzo, told the Daily News yesterday that the government was worried by the flooding of the black market with these dangerous products.
“The authorities are embarking on aggressive public awareness campaigns to educate the general public on the harmful effects of buying products such as sexual performance enhancers from unapproved or unlicensed outlets such as street stalls, backpack dealers and tuckshops.
“In Zimbabwe, these medicines are desirable only if prescribed by an authorised or licensed medical practitioner, after consultation to treat an underlying medical condition. “Therefore, these sexual performance enhancers are illegal in as far as the requirements of the MASCA are concerned,” Gwatidzo said.
Zimbabwe has increasingly witnessed the ever rising tide of street vendors and unscrupulous pharmacies selling unregistered sex tablets and traditional medicines, which are a hit among many men and women struggling to satisfy their sex lives.
Although MCAZ launched a blitz against the illegal sale of the sex performance tablets two years ago, rampant smuggling and corruption in the country has been blamed for the re-emergence of the booming, but frowned upon black market trade.
Gwatidzo said MCAZ was working closely with the police and the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) to try and stop the illegal trade.
