Ghanian actor-cum-politician, John Dumelo has stated that polygamy should be officially legalized in Ghana.
According to him, polygamy should be legalized because most married men have women they have affairs with outside their marriage.
He added that those women perform the same duties as wives.
In his word;
“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 I think it’s time for that to be repealed.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 status because they perform the same duties.”
John Dumelo also added that in the same vein, polyandry should be legalized so that women can freely marry more than one man.
Reacting to his post, the actor’s wife, Mrs Gifty Mawunya Dumelo wrote:
“Equal rights indeed …babe hurry home and meet my new new husband.”
