• The statement from Suluhu has been welcomed by men who have been victims of ‘sending fare’ and ‘paying rent’.
Tanzania President Samia Suluhu has attracted admiration from men after her decree on women asking men for money.
On Thursday, Suluhu urged men to report women who ask them for money yet they are not their marital partners.
“Men, if ladies who are not your wives ask you to give them money, report them to police stations,” Suluhu said.
The statement from Suluhu has been welcomed by men on social media platforms, who have been victims of ‘sending fare’ and ‘paying rent’.
The Tanzanian Head of State has been on the headlines before for her comment on ‘flat-chested’ female footballers.
“For those who have flat chests, you might think they are men and not women,” she said at Sunday’s event.
“And if you look at their faces you might wonder … because if you want to marry, you want someone who is attractive, a lady who has the qualities that you want,” Suluhu said.
This attracted uproar from the public as many described it as body shaming.
