Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba has the Twitter community puzzled after his comment that the distribution of sanitary towels promotes pupils to think of sex.

The debate ensued after the mayor posted a screenshot of minister of environmental affairs Nomvula Mokonyane posing alongside Grade R pupils with a delivery of sanitary towels.

“Are these fake news? These children deserve books and toys,” Mashaba tweeted.
