In a bid to stop the scourge of prostitution in the country, the president of Tanzania, John Magufili has pleaded with his fellow men to marry two or more wives.
According to the number one citizen, this will also reduce the rate of redundancy among women.
Magufili who said this while addressing a conference of 14,000 men on Monday in Dar-es-Salaam, the commercial port of the country’s Indian Ocean Coast, affirmed that based on statistics, out of the 70 million Tanzanian; 40 million are women forcing a lot of unmarried women to commit adultery with other people’s husbands.
He added: “I am not forcing you, but just encouraging you to marry two or more wives to reduce the number of women staying without husbands.
“Our women are crying every day due to lack of men to marry and support them economically hence they engage in pr0stitution. So please try to work hard and be productive so that you can help our women by marrying two or more wives provided you are able to provide for their basic needs.
“As government, we shall be giving some small incentives to such men provided you don’t abuse your wives.”

Tanzania reportedly has the highest level of prostitution in East Africa, especially among young girls and women who are not in school or formal employment.
