Global health charity, Marie Stopes have announced that hundreds of faulty condoms have been recalled in Uganda.

The recall comes after a warning was issued by Uganda’s National Drug Authority (NDA) that the Life Guard brand condoms failed in manufacturing “quality tests” because they contained holes and may burst.

The affected condoms were manufactured by India-based MHL Healthcare in April 2019 and have an expiry date of April 2024, the government regulator said.

Earlier reports had suggested that millions of the condoms were recalled but NDA spokesman Fred Ssekyana told AFP the figure was below one million.

Marie Stopes Uganda spokesman David Kamu told AFP on Wednesday, November 20,  that the two affected batches each contained “around 400,000” condoms.

According to UNAIDS, 1.4 million Ugandans are living with HIV, and they are among the highest number of people living with the disease in the world.

    The Uganda government should investigate the parties involved because I suspect a foul play by the manufacturer. If convicted, the company should be ban for life.
