Addressing journalists at the Grand Imperial Hotel last week, the state minister, Dr. Richard Nduhuura, dismissed claims that the condoms were substandard. â€œInitially, the condoms were rejected due to the foul smell.The people thought that they were rotting but now they have been improved,â€ he said.
