- Tanzania's first female president, Samia Suluhu, said that submitting before her husband is not an act that shows inferiority but rather love
- Samia Suluhu said this while she was Vice President to the late John Pombe Magufuli
- How gender equality applies in marriage particularly for women continues to be a matter of debate among various societal groups
A video has surfaced on social media showing Her Excellency, Samia Suluhu of Tanzania, indicating that she has no problem submitting to her husband.
The footage was sighted by Briedly.co.za on the Twitter handle of a user named @Goddieh_njihia who suggested that the first female president of Tanzania was lovable for her words.
According to her, as part of their roles in a family institution, women are supposed to submit to men as an act of love whilst men also shower their love on them.
See the video below:
Her own words when translated reads:
"Some of you will say we are equal in all aspects of society, No! That's not the right position. Even as vice president, I will kneel before my husband. I don't kneel because I am inferior, it's because of love and affection"
Checks conducted by Briefly.co.za, however, revealed that Samia Suluhu said this while she was Vice President to the late John Pombe Magufuli.
The concept of gender equality and how it applies in marriage particularly for women continues to be a matter of debate among various societal groups.
In other news, US First Lady Jill Biden shared some divorce advice with TV host and singer Kelly Clarkson in a recent interview to be aired on the Kelly Clarkson Show.
The singer sat down with the president's wife at the White House and the 69-year-old shared important advice on finding love after a divorce.
It should be noted that Jill divorced her first husband, Bill Stevenson, after five years together before meeting Joe in 1975 and getting married in 1977.
According to People, Jill said her divorce led her to Biden and she is happy with the family they have build.
"I look back on it now and I think, If I hadn't gotten divorced, I never would've met Joe. I wouldn't have the beautiful family I have now, so I really think things happen for the best," Jill said.
