MEDICAL Stores Limited Managing Director Bornface Fundafunda has revealed that it distributed condoms and gloves to the public that do not meet the required standards set by the Zambia Bureau of Standards (ZABS).
Whilst appearing before the Public Accounts Committee Wednesday afternoon, ZABS revealed that it conducted tests on the condoms and gloves on September 23, 2020 of which it revealed that they did not meet the required standards.
And ZAMRA has admitted that it was an oversight by the institution not to recall the products from the market because the authority has been waiting for other test confirmations from Zimbabwe.
Meanwhile, the condoms and gloves in question are still on the market for public use for over four months now.
