Women’s Rights Group Challenges Ban On Sex Toys

Women’s Rights Group Challenges Ban On Sex Toys

The Women’s Academy for Leadership and Political Excellence (WALPE) is challenging the Customs and Excise Act which prohibits the importation of sex toys (dildos), saying the law violates women’s right to pleasure.

WALPE executive director Sitabile Dewa last week lodged a court application challenging the legality of Section 47(1) b of the Customs and Excise Act which criminalises the importation of goods regarded as indecent.

In a statement, WALPE said the law is archaic and infringes on women’s rights to sexual pleasure. Part of the statement reads:

WALPE executive director Dewa is approaching the courts to challenge Section 47(1)b of the Customs and Excise Act which prohibits the importation of any goods which are indecent, obscene, or objectionable.

She is arguing that the law is draconian, and archaic and infringes on women’s rights to sexual pleasure, right to choice and association.

Dewa is being represented by human rights lawyer Jeremiah Bamu of Mbidzo Muchadehama and Makoni Legal Practitioners.

The law was used to convict a Harare resident, Ayanda Muponda, who sold dildos.

She was sentenced to a two-year prison term which was wholly suspended on condition she performs 640 hours of community service. | NewZimbabwe.com

Like seriously?
Most women rights organizations and so called activists are a sham and an embarrassment.

Of all things that have to do with women's issues, they mostly focus on the most trivial and absurd of them all.

Woman must first listen before they speak **** is not the priority of life, worse still if it is desired in such a disgusting way. They must be silenced they lack maturity and think they only live for **** and mastubation

At law ,the heads of argument state that "the law is draconian, and archaic and infringes on women’s rights to ****ual pleasure, right to choice and association"
Emotions aside, the court is obliged to hear matter as it has cconstitution


Jeremiah Mafirakureva 1 month ago

Emotions aside, the court is obliged to hear the matter as it has overtones of alleged infringement on human rights .
The case is therefore predicated on the constitutionality of the Excise Duty Act (s) 47 (1) (b).
Dildos aside, I find the litigation quite interesting! interesting...

I therefore look forward to it's unraveling.
