Tanzania’s First Ever Female President Lambasted For Her Remarks On Female Footballers Having “Flat Chests” And Being “Unattractive For Marriage.”

Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu Hassan is being criticised online for her remarks on female footballers having “flat chests” and being unattractive for marriage.

The president was speaking at state house in Dar es Salaam to receive a trophy won by the national under-23 football team for the season’s Council for East and Central Africa Football Associations (Cecafa) challenge cup.

She said while women were making the country proud by winning trophies, some of them did not stand a chance at getting married because of the way they looked.

“If we bring them here and line them up, for those with flat chests, you might think they are men – not women,” she said of the women’s football team.

She said while some of the sportswomen were married, most of them were not, “and for the way they are, a life of marriage… is a just a dream”.

The president said sportspeople were living a tough life after their career in sports and asked the authorities to ensure their future was well taken care of after retirement. She noted that it was particularly harder for women “where their legs are tired, when they have retired from the sport”.
