Makosi donates sanitary pads in Tokwe Mukosi
Former UK nurse turned Big Brother celebrity Makosi Musambasi on Friday donated sanitary pads to flood victims in the Tokwe Mukosi area.
“We took sanitary towels and cotton wool to #Tokwemukosi however more needs to be done. More than 3000 families still live in tents but my heart is with my sisters because I know how important sanitary towels are,” she said.
“Zimbabwe is not a person it’s a people. I AM BECAUSE YOU ARE these women are not forgotten. Be your sister’s keeper and donate a pad. #makositoday #Africa,” she later tweeted.

More than 3,000 people were relocated to the Chingwizi holding camp after flooding caused by heavy rains and resultant fears that the Tokwe-Mukosi dam wall could collapse.
The villagers at Chingwizi have been living in insecure tent accommodation since their homes, crops and property were washed away in February this year.
They have demanded a total of $9 million and vowed they will not move from Chingwizi until they have received compensation.
Meanwhile Makosi, a former UK Big Brother star has put her controversial past behind her and is now a television presenter with her own talk show Makosi Today.
She was recently in South Africa filming Season 2 of Makosi Today.
The programme is broadcast every Monday on the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC-TV).
