She defended this logic by saying that men prefer women who are ‘gentle’ and ‘effeminate’.

“We women value men for their strength and leadership. No matter who your husband is, he is still your imam.”

She also claimed that men would always occupy coveted roles in the workplace, even if has female employees or high ranking officers.

Prof Muhaya advised women to not focus on “liberating themselves and trying to be on equal footing with men”.

“This is because you would be busy satisfying your husband’s needs and increasing his libido.

“As for the singles, this is why you’re getting married late.”

Prof Muhaya then ended the video by saying that a woman needs to be a little ‘stupid’.

“Men like women who are gentle, have high hormonal levels, ask for help often, and act a little stupid.”

Netizens did not hold back in expressing their thoughts about the video, with most condemning Prof Muhaya for her misogynistic statements.

One wrote that getting a life partner and acting stupid was unrelated.
