Wiyaala has called out founder of a non-governmental organisation, Inspire Today, Rita Etornam Sey for claiming that girls in the Northern Region use clay as a substitute for menstrual pad.
Ghanaian Afro-pop singer-songwriter who hails from the Northern Region appears not happy with the untruth told by the NGO Founder who in an interview on GTV to commemorate World Menstrual Hygiene Day, said girls in the Northern Region, use all manner of materials including clay as a substitute for menstrual pad.
Reacting to the development, Wiyaala described the claim by Madam Sey as false and denigrating.
“Please to the whole Ghana and wherever you will see this video, it’s a lie, our sister, I am not attacking you but I don’t know why you said that and what you are trying to achieve.”
“I am not going to ask you to prove it because it’s a lie so please stop it, any platform that interviewed her know that it’s a lie,” Wiyaala said.
Sey had earlier said in the interview that; “It is important that we pay attention to good menstrual hygiene, knowing very well what some of the girls use when they are menstruating,” she said.
She added: “For Inspire Today, over the period the places we have been to, the girls use all manner of materials for menstruation, some use newspapers, we went to the North, some of the girls use clay as substitute for sanitary pad.”
