Female lawmaker urges men to marry more wives to boost population

 

A female Kenyan lawmaker, Gathoni Wa Muchomba, has encouraged rich men to marry more than one wife in order to help boost the country’s population.

The lawmaker, a former journalist, said this while addressing the issue of fatherless children in the society during the opening of a rehabilitation centre.

Wa Muchomba said some of the societal problems, including alcoholism among young people, could largely be blamed on raising children in the absence of substantive fathers.

“We need to be honest; these children who are raised by single mothers, where are their fathers?

“And why do we want to pretend that this is not a problem? For me, as much as we are talking about our church and our culture, we need to go back to the drawing board to discuss this issue and come up with a solution,” she was quoted by KenyaLiveNews

She advised that rich men should marry many wives, saying this would help curb the number of children born outside of wedlock.

“We give birth to these children, and we do not want to own up to them…I am saying if you are a man from the Kikuyu,( a community in Kenya) and you can sustain five wives, have them and if you are a man and you are in a position to bring up (many children), do it.”

“Revisiting polygamy could be a solution to the vices since some of the social problems affecting youth are attributed to poor parenting,” she added.

She also urged the various religious institutions to acknowledge polygamous marriages.
