Tanzania to publish names of married men to tame cheating and save young women from heartbreaks

Tanzanian government is set to receive a proposal that will see names of married men published in an effort to curb cheating among couples and save young women from heartbreaks. The idea was announced by Dar es Salaam regional commissioner, Paul Makonda, on Monday, August 12, who said the provincial top administration is mulling over the idea.

Taking to Twitter to make the announcement, Makonda said identities of married men will be published on a website run by a state agency. According to the regional commissioner, the move will also stop deceitful married men from sexually preying on unsuspecting single women.

Makonda noted the proposal was based on the constitutional laws using a clause that protects women who were promised marriages only to be used and dumped.


If adopted, all married people will be required to register their marital statuses with the region’s database agency. Any woman who has been promised marriage can then access the database and find out whether the man who has promised to marry them is someone's husbands or not.

In that database, all the marriages, including Christian, customary, Muslim, those filed at the registrar of marriages, will be registered.
