NAIROBI – The Kenyan parliament has issued a new bill allowing men to marry more than one wife, sparking a backlash from female lawmakers who stormed out of the session.
“When you marry an African woman, she must know the second one is on the way, and a third wife... this is Africa,” MP Junet Mohammed told the house, AFP reported, citing Nairobi's Capital FM.
The new bill, issued last Thursday, amends existing marriage legislation, formalizing a customary law applied in different African countries.
