Tanzania President Suluhu’s Co-Wives That's Generating a lot Of Noise Among Fellow Women

After succeeding late President John Pombe Maghufuli, the serving President of the Republic Tanzania became the first female president of the country.

Her marital status and lifestyle have been followed has been the talk of the town. It seems that feminists in Ghana are stirring up due to her latest picture.

Samia Suluhu is married to her Excellence in a polygamous family environment. Her husband Hafidh Amier has two other women together with Samia Suluhu making it three wives for her husband.

Some women, have indicated how disgust it feels when a distinguished woman like the president of Tanzania is married into a polygamous family which seems quiet shocking to them. What they don't know is the prosperity of Suluhu and her co-wives.

For a long time African women have been plunging into the western cultures, neglecting African roots even though they still make their livelihood in the continent. Africa nowadays seems like a continent that has continued to practice polygamous alot, but these women seem to have forgotten that.

The president of Tanzania is a Muslim, a religion that is all right with polygamy and in which the man can marry a maximum of four women. Hafidh Amier is only one wife short of the number of women permitted by his religion and it's clear that his wives don't have much to complain about him.

The president was asked about her marital status and she was very proud to reveal her polygamous status, saying:

"Some of you will say, in every aspect of life, that we are equal. But No! This isn't the case at all. This is not the right assumption. I'll kneel even in front of my husband as President still. Do not leave this tradition, so that we can strengthen the links between our families and educate our children in good manners."

One of Hafidh's wives honoured him by turning him into a first man, the President's husband. The feminist from Ghana should learn from Samia Suluhu's excellence and follow her footsteps.
