Catcalling of women behavior has been rampant among men worldwide. Probably you have heard of the sounds like ‘Ksss Ksss Ksss’ behind women. Tanzanian authorities have outlawed the common behavior. As per Commissioner Hassan Nassir Ali, whoever will be found guilty of this behavior will be arrested.
“Mwanamke akipita pengine maumbile yake yamejaza, anakohoa mmh mmh, hilo ni shambulio la aibu, tutakukamata tukupeleke mahakamani, wengine wanafikiri ni mchezo. Ina maana mama, dada na watoto wetu wenye maumbile makumbwa wasitembee mitaani, maana wakitembea tu watu wanaanza kukohoa mmh mmh. wewe kama unakikohozi, nenda kakohoe kwako ndani huwezi kuwa mwanamke amepita hapo unakohoa, hilo ni shambulio la aibu,” said Commissioner Nassir.
Tanzanian government is working tirelessly to be on the forefront of restoring morals in new rules in the Electronic and Postal Communications Act and the Media Services Act.
In the proposed regulations, online content providers shall not publish material described either as indecent, obscene, hate speech, extreme violence or material that will offend others or incite them.
Indecent content in the Act is defined as “information which is offensive, morally improper and against current standards of accepted behavior, including nudity and sex.”
