Living in the midst of a pandemic, masks limit the volume and travel distance of expiratory droplets dispersed when talking, breathing, and coughing, reducing the chances of Covid19 infection.

The user captioned the post:

“How not to wear a mask.”

Tito Mboweni sparks debate on obedient wives

Briefly News previously reported on the outspoken South African politician, Tito Mboweni, who is not sure he agrees with the age-old obedient wife culture that still runs strong in many Mzansi homes.

Patriarchy is the base of many traditional cultures in SA and something women have been fighting to be liberated from for many years. Women should not be slaves to men!

Taking to social media with a picture of a woman kneeling before a man, Tito asked if this whole obedient wife thing is still something we should be practising.

Tito feels the time of distinguished gender roles has passed and that women should no longer have to be submissive to their male partner, or any man in that fact.
