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 YEN.com.gh 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 YEN.com.gh, 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.
While on the subject of women, a young lady with the Twitter handle @AbimbolaAudrey has said that job hunting frustration that comes after her National Service programme is real.
In a tweet on Friday, March 19, the lady lamented sending out CVs to 10 different places without getting a response from any of them.
@AbimbolaAudre said she is yet to be called for an interview since February. Many Nigerians came under her tweet to offer assistance.
