Unfaithfulness is one of the main reasons many couples break up or divorce in marriages. The rate at which people cheat continues to rise exponentially and the society has almost normalized the concept of cheating.
Today, so many married men popularly known as ‘sponsors’ or ‘sponyos’ take advantage of young girls by asking for sexual favors in exchange for small monies.
In a move to curb cheating and protect young girls from “unnecessary heartbreaks”, the government of Tanzania has announced plans to create and publish a national database of married men.
The idea which seems comical was born after numerous complaints were launched by young women who claim to have been deceived several times by married men.
The database will have the names and photos of all married men in the Magufuli-led state and is expected to be run by a state agency.
Dar es Salaam regional commissioner, Paul Makonda while speaking to the media highlighted that many women have been ditched by men terming it as a ‘humiliating’ experience for them.
“These cunning men have left many women nursing heartbreaks and emotional bruises. You’ll find a young man successfully wooing a woman, making her leave every other thing that she does, hoping that the man will marry her, not knowing that he is, indeed, conning her.”
“If possible we will set up a database in the regional commissioner’s office in each region that every man who promises a woman marriage, this should be registered in the database which will allow women to check to see whether the person asking is married,” Makonda added.
