Into the jaws of corruption

Today I feel a bit dirty after handing over $200 to an immigration official along with my passport in order to get another three months of tourist visa. It seems that indeed, foreign women with jobs here are not legally able to bring husbands with them, despite contrary information on the Tanzanian national web site – seems spouse just means wife in Tanzanian English. Can this really be true? I am trying to obtain confirmation in writing.
