Ghollywood actor, John Dumelo wants the law against polygamy to be canceled.
According to him, a lot of married men have side chicks who also perform the duties of a wife.
He added that under customary law and Mohammedan law Cap 129, a man is actually allowed to marry more than one woman.
The movie star added that polyandry should also be legalized for women so they can also marry more than one man.
His words, “Under customary law and Mohammedans law Cap 129, a man can marry more than one woman. Under the marriage Ordinace Cap 127, a man is allowed to marry only one woman. If he marries more than one, he commits bigamy. I think it’s time for that to be repealed. After all most married men have side chicks and it’s time elevate them to wifey stautus because they peroform the same duties.”
His wife replied with these words, “Equal rights indeed …babe hurry home and meet my new husband.”
