‘I Still Kneel, Submit To My Husband’ – Tanzanian President, Samia Suluhu Hassan (Video)
President Salahu assumed the role following the announcement of the death of John Pombe Magufuli last Wednesday, after a two-week absence from public life that drew speculation about his health.
She has now become the sixth and first female President of the East African country.
In a short video shared online, the President expressed that she kneels before he husband not because she is inferior to him but because of love and care she has for him and not because she’s inferior.
President Salahu is married Hafidh Ameir, at present a retired agricultural officer and they are blessed with four children.
She averred that such tradition of honour should not be thrown out as it strenghtens family bond and ensure children are brought up with good manners.
President Salahu said;
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.
Don’t leave this tradition so we can strengthen the bond of our families and bring up our children through good manners.
