Tanzanian president seeks end to contraception
President John Magufuli has urged Tanzanian women to “give up contraceptive methods” insisting his country needs more people, local media reported Monday.
“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, according to The Citizen daily newspaper.
