"If you walk in this village, you will find so many young married women, but only a few are pregnant.
Those who are not are suffering in silence because their men cannot perform," resident Akhona Andile said. She said men have been drinking anything alcoholic to keep them high, but society bears the consequences of se_xual dysfunction.
"It would not be a wonder if we start looking for men to sire our children. Our husbands will not know anything. We will trick them that the pregnancies are theirs and they will support us," Siphiwe said . The 32-year-old mother of one separated from her husband four years ago.
