No sex in exchange for jobs’


AS complaints against ‘demand for sex as a barrier to employment for women’ increase, authorities here have vowed to use whatever within their reach to end the problem.
Responding to concerns raised by backbenchers led by Mr Jaku Hashim Ayoub (CCM- Paje), deputy Ministers: Ms Shadya Mohamed Suleiman (Women and Children Affairs), and Mr Khamis Juma Mwalim (Constitutional Affairs) said it is unethical for employers, particularly in public offices to engage in sex corruption.

Ms Suleiman said ongoing public awareness and promoting culture of openness among job seekers and female staffs has been the major way to ensure that ‘sex corruption’ in work places ends.
“In our awareness campaign we have managed to reach about 3,688 female workers. We ask them to expose bosses who demand sex from them before getting employed.
This must end,” said the deputy minister for women.
Deputy Minister Mwalim also warned leaders and executives who interfere with court proceedings that they risk to be sacked from their positions should they be found guilty.
“No one is above the law. We must all ensure that the judiciary is independent. Leaders should not, in any way, interfere with Court proceedings.
We are now investigating so that leaders with such behaviour are sacked,” said Mr Mwalim.
The Minister for Children and Women; and Ministry for Constitution Affairs have teamed up with other cathodes including NGOs to end abuse and violation of children and women rights.
