There seems to be a tampon shortage in the city.

A tweet by vocal feminist Scheaffer Okore sparked an online conversation with women commenting in their droves inquiring about this shortage.

Some complained that the few shops stocking tampons had increased the price while others revealed they had to import their stash from abroad as they could not seem to get any in local shops.

Is there really a shortage of this precious commodity?

We sampled some of the tweets as seen below:


The following online shops, Mydawa, Kasha and Heri revealed they were well stocked.
