With the news of Scotland making access to sanitary pads a right, Soweto TV host Lerato K took to Twitter with truth bombs about access to women’s health in SA.

The star first called on President Cyril Ramaphosa, saying SA should be following Scotland’s example for all to possess access to sanitary products.

“If Scotland can do that, why can’t we, Cyril Ramaphosa. Every girl child and woman who struggles to possess access to sanitary products looks up to you to assist us to make period poverty history!” tweeted the star.

Many fans praised the stars involve action.

However, there was one tweep who thought Lerato should be making a gift of free pads rather than asking the govt to vary its policies.

The DJ quickly schooled the troll before they got before themselves, saying she donated 60,000 pads out of her pocket during the lockdown. She mentioned how without government assistance or financial capital, making pads may be a costly affair.

Lerato called out the peep for being a hypocrite, saying they ought to also take responsibility for the problems women face daily rather than asking celebs to stay giving.

This prompted the star to call out those that don’t use their platforms to talk out against injustices like period poverty since it is not “chic”.

“Sanitary pads don’t get you drunk or high, aren’t glamorous, or fit into the aesthetics on your page, that’s why a number of you think that what we do maybe a joke. But, for many South Africans, it’s not — period poverty are some things which many struggles with as a part of their lives!

“And yet is it something very easy to repair,” wrote Lerato.
