Gogos in Mpumalanga have been snapping up free condoms from clinics to rub on their knees, African Eye reports.

One 69-year-old woman from Mahushu, near Hazyview, is reported as saying the condoms help ease the pain in her knees by providing healing warmth.

The condoms have become so popular amongst pensioners that Mpumalanga health and social development MEC Candith Mashego-Dlamini has had to appeal to the pensioners to stop taking them.

A general practitioner at the Siyanqoba Medical Centre, Dr Eric Khumalo, who specialises in treating patients with TB and HIV, has urged the elderly not to take the condoms because it's important that they are available for people who are sexually active.
