This week on The Chatroom the dilemma we are dealing with is one that university student Simlindile Mbongwa has. She’s a young woman who has issues with virginity testing. This is a practice where elders ceremonially check young maidens, to see if they are still virgins. It is a practice that was outlawed in 2007 in South Africa but is still widely practiced, particularly in rural areas. Share your views with us on this matter. That’s right here on SABC 1, Mzansi fo sho.
Be sure not to miss all this and more, this Sunday @ 11h30. Catch the full programme again on YouTube after the TV broadcast at 12:00!
