Newly sworn-in President of Tanzania, Samia Suluhu, has revealed that she still kneels and submits to her husband even when she was the Vice President of Tanzania.
Samia, who became the first female President of the East African country following the death of President John Pombe Magufuli, stated that she knelt before her husband not because she’s inferior but because of love and affection.
The politician said that such tradition should not be thrown out as it strengthens the family bond and ensures children are brought up with good manners.
“Some of you will say we are equal in all aspects of society, No! That’s not the correct 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.
‘Don’t leave this tradition so we can strengthen the bond of our families and bring up our children through good manners,” she said.
