Ghanaian actor John Dumelo has taken a very controversial stance on marriage. The actor, who got married last year and thereafter welcomed a son, expressed his wish for a law against polygamy to be repealed. According to him, men should be allowed to marry more than one wife since most of them have side chicks who perform the same duties as their wives.
He took to social media to write: “Under customary law and Mohammedans law Cap 129, a man can marry more than one woman. Under the marriage Ordinance 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 I think it’s time for that to be repealed.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 status because they perform the same duties.”
He also added that in the same vein, polyandry should be legalized to enable women marry more than one husband.
The actor who joined politics recently is currently vying for a political post in Ghana. Perhaps, this is one of the laws he hopes to enact should he enter office.
Do you support what he said? Many guys would support that LOL. Anyway, we’ll welcome your suggestions in the comment box below. Thanks
