Caving to tribal tradition, President Ian Khama of Botswana, 57, has dispatched his presidential aides to find him a suitable wife ASAP. However, he has made it very clear that not just any woman will do.
At a political party meeting, he said that to be a potential wife, a woman had to be "tall, slim, and beautiful." In case there was any confusion, he singled out a shorter, plumper government minster and said:
"I don't want one like this one. She may fail to pass through the door, breaking furniture with her heavy weight and even break the vehicle's shock absorbers."
Ladies, I challenge you to try and hold yourself back from this great catch.
Do you the President's comments were sexist and uncalled for?
