Tertiary students in Francistown have been given a leeway to have relationships but be faithful to each other.
Last Friday night, student couples – drawn from the tertiary schools dotted around the country’s second largest city – took turns to strut their stuff at the Francistown civic centre where the best couple was picked.
The couple was named Mr. and Miss Faithfulness.
And the winning couple of Dominic Keatswitswe and Philliciah Keboetetse are expected to urge their peers to be faithful to their partners.
Organizer of the show, Oteng Kebitseope – the Francistown College of Education (FCE) Campus Health Coordinator for the Tertiary Institutions’ HIV/AIDS Prevention and Health Programme – said the idea is to reduce cases of multiple concurrent partnerships among tertiary students.
She said the event will be an annual one in order to be always reminding students about the dangers of having many sexual partners.
