Sikongo District Commissioner Bright Tombi has counselled women in the district to only bear a number of children that they can support.

The DC says it is absolutely unfair for women and their partners to introduce innocent lives in this world and subject them to harsh realities of poverty.

Speaking when he donated 250kgs of mealie meal to the mother’s shelter as food for expectant mothers at Sikongo Rural health Centre, Mr. Tombi urged the young mothers to seriously adhere to family planning initiatives.

He wondered why residents, especially mothers, were continuously flocking to his office for help in terms of relief food but at same time neglect controlling themselves from unplanned bearing of children.
