Female Footballers Not Wifey Material Due To Flat Chests, Says Tanzania’s Samia Hassan

Tanzania’s President Samia Hassan has dropped a bombshell on the country’s female footballers, by saying that while they have been enhancing the country’s international image by winning crowns, some of them are not wifey material due to flat chests. That was reported by some media on August 23, 2021. The president is said to have made the utterance during a state house event on August 22, 2021.

More specifically, the president reportedly observed that some female footballers have no chance of getting marriage because of the way they look. She continued and we quote partly as thus:

“……….. for those with flat chests, you might think they are men, not women”

She then added and we quote partly again:

“………. and for the way they are, a life of marriage …….. is just a dream”

The rather interesting utterance that seems to present the president’s theory about relationship between female football and marriage, has been interpreted in some quarters as implying that some female footballers are not sexy alias attractive enough for marriage because of having flat chests, while others could have probably interpreted it as her honest concern about what she believes to be declining attractiveness among female footballers or perhaps women in Tanzania at large.

Notwithstanding, President Samia Hassan utterance is said to have been castigated by her critics as humiliation of all women. One wonders, however, whether the embattled postulation by the president who is the first woman to hold the position in Tanzania, could perhaps be validated by statistical evidence to silence the critics.
