In past elections, it has been mainly Zimbabwe’s women who have voted. That may change in the African country’s elections expected at the end of this month as a female government minister is calling on women to withhold s3x from their partners unless they register to vote.
Leading this campaign to ensure Zimbabwean men vote in the country’s elections, expected on July 31, is Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga, the country’s minister of regional integration and international cooperation.
She said Zimbabwean women must deny their partners s*x until they register to vote. “You are basically saying to your partners, we are all suffering the same way. We need to make a difference. I am not asking you to go to war. I am asking you to go and vote,” said Misihairabwi-Mushonga.
“You have a responsibility. For years, we have seen that the majority of people that go to register to vote have been women. And this call is to say, we as women can’t be taking this struggle alone. We need to take our men on board. And if we can’t bring them on board by talking to them nicely, we would deny them something we know they certainly would want.”
Currently, there is voter registration going on and Minister Misihairabwi-Mushonga thinks Zimbabwean men will participate if they are starved for s3x. “S3x strike is not a new concept. It has been used to stop wars. It has been used to ask for developmental things in the areas and has been very successful. So this is not a revolutionary concept that I am coming up with. It is a concept that has been use the world over.”
Hmmm… Does s3x denial actually work? Would it work in this situation? Lets wait and see…
