Tanzanian’s President; Samia Suluhu Claims She “Still Kneel And Submit To Her Husband
Submission in marriage is a tricky subject. Newly sworn-in President of Tanzania; Samia Suluhu has made the word “Submission in marriage” seem so easy. She said that she still kneels and submits to her husband even when she was the Vice President of the country.
Samia who is a devout Muslim became the first female President of East African country following the death of President John Magufuli. She revealed that she knees before her husband not because she’s inferior, but because of love and affection.
She further shed light on African traditions and cultures. She 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 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.’
A Man is always the Head of the house irrespective of the wife’s achievement. For President Samia who has reached the pinnacle of power, to reveal that she still submits and kneels to her husband, means that she knows that by default, women are to submit to their husbands no matter the height of their achievements In life.
Though I agree that a woman should be submissive to her husband, and I honestly won’t fault anyone for what they choose to do but the question is, at what times does she kneel? Is it when she is serving him food? When she’s greeting? Or is it when they are both having a family conversation? Does she also kneel when they are in public places? Am just curious!
In my opinion, being submissive in marriage is not about inferiority but obedience, humility, and meekness. Submission is wisdom.
