Dodoma — Just one day after President John Magufuli reiterated his opposition to birth controls by telling Tanzanians to continue reproducing, a Member of Parliament (MP) has faulted him on grounds that his (the President’s) position was going contrary to the available national policies.
Speaking at a public rally in Meatu in Simiyu Region on Sunday, September 09, 2018, President Magufuli told the gathering not to listen to those advising about birth controls, saying those doing so had some sinister motives.
“Those going for family planning are lazy… .they are afraid they will not be able to feed their children. They do not want to work hard to feed a large family. And that is why they opt for birth controls and end up with one or two children only,” he added.
