Tanzanian Lawmakers call out President over contraceptive statement.

Published

on

Lawmakers in Tanzania have called out president John Pombe Magufuli for telling women in the country to give up contraceptive methods, arguing that the president’s position is not consistent with existing national policies.

Magufuli, who is an advocate for large families and huge populations, told citizens attending a rally on Sunday to keep reproducing because the government was increasing investment in the health sector, specifically maternal health.



“You have cattle. You are big farmers. You can feed your children. Why then resort to birth control? This is my opinion, I see no reason to control births in Tanzania,” Magufuli said in a speech on Sunday.

However, according to Cecil Mwambe, a legislator, the country’s health insurance scheme can only accomodate a maximum of four children from one family.
