“We want to encourage women to go and get tested at their nearest clinic,” Inkatha Freedom Party spokeswoman Ncamisile Nkwanyana said in a statement.

Regular pap smears can save lives by detecting abnormalities at an early stage.

“This particular form of the disease can be a silent killer as it has no obvious symptoms, which is why pap smear testing is so crucial,” she said.

The IFP also encouraged men to get tested for prostate cancer.
