'A good spanking will whip them back into line'
Dar es Salaam - The Tanzanian government
should add spanking to its list of possible punishments for
errant investors, local media on Thursday quoted a member of
"Spanking should be added in the list of punishments to deal
with investors who are not abiding by the laid down laws,"
The Citizen newspaper quoted legislator Masolwa Cosmas Masolwa as
saying during a parliamentary debate on a bill to strengthen laws
that regulate banks and other financial institutions.
"A stroke or two on offenders would humiliate them and whip
them back in line," the state-owned Daily News also quoted
Masolwa, who belongs to the ruling party, as saying.
The east African nation's political stability since independence
in 1961 and healthy recent economic growth has made it popular
with foreign investors who have poured more money into Tanzania
recently than into neighbouring Kenya or Uganda.
