Kenya female lawmakers stage walkout as polygamy law is passed

It was a sitting filled with drama today in Kenya's parliament as female members of the assembly staged a walkout during proceedings in the parliament. Their grievance was as a result of a new law their male counterparts all favored which they see as derogatory to the rights of Kenyan women.

Prior to today when the Kenyan Marriage Amended Bill was passed into law, it was customary in Kenya for men to seek the permission of their first wife before bringing in another woman as second wife or even marry as many as they want. The men obviously woke up from their slumber and decided to remove that clause in their constitution and this infuriated the women big time. Continue..


Mohammed Junet, an MP representing a constituency from the western Nyanza province,

"When you marry an African woman, she must know the second one is on the way and a third wife… this is Africa," Kenya's Capital News website quotes him as saying.

MPs Aden Duale, Jakoyo Midiwo and Junet Mohammed said it was against tradition to seek consent to marry a second wife and claimed their female colleagues had an ulterior motive in trying to push for the clause.

"I want my Christian brothers to read the Old Testament, King David and King Solomon never consulted anybody to marry a second wife," said Duale.

The women would have none of those talk as they believe it is a sign of respect for a man to discuss with his wife his intention to marry a second wife. MP Soipan Tuya says"It behoves you to be man enough to agree that your wife and family should know".


Despite their walkout, the bill was still passed into law as the men outnumbered the women in the parliament when voting was required.

The law on a brighter side enables Kenyan women to have 30%of any property the couple acquires during marriage and she can go with it even after divorce. The bill amongst other things also bans marriages of anyone below 18, and does not recognize live-in-lovers known as "come-make-we-stay" in Kenya.

    This is backwardness. I wonder what is happening to us in Africa, we are quick to pass bills on polygamy, underage marriages and other things that do not have value while our economy is suffering and none of our lawmakers is thinking of progressive bills to pass to redeem the ugly situation. There is wahala in Africa o!

    I THINK IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO LET YOU KNOW THAT HE WANT TO BRING IN ANOTHER WIFE.

    I AM THE FIRST WIFE , BUT MY HUSBAND HAVE TWO OTHER WIVES.

    I DO NOT THINK , IT IS MY BUSINESS, BECAUSE , I TOLD HIM TO GIVE ME MY OWN HOUSE, IT MEANS I DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO LOSE, AS I HAVE MY OWN SPACE. THE PRESURE WOULD NOT BE TOO MUCH ON ME , SUCH AS ENTERTAINING HIS FRIENDS , COOKING, OR ASKING ME WHERE I GO , OR WHEN TO COME BACK. OR WOULD NOT ALLOW ME TO SLEEP OVERNIGHT. BECAUSE , HE WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH YOU MORE THAN SIX TIMES.

    SO , I FEEL ,THAT IT IS A GREAT FREEDOM FOR ME . I AM NO LONGER COOKING ALL THE TIME , AND HIS FAMILY INSULT ALSO REDUCE.

    BECAUSE THEY DO NOT COME TO MY HOUSE ANYHOW AS BEFORE.

    THEY NOW GO TO HIS HOUSE , AND HIS NEW WIFE DO THE ENTERTAINING.

    I AM VERY PLEASE THAT HE SPEND THREE DAYS WITH ME AND GO BACK TO HIS NEW WIFE. I HAVE MY BUSINESS, AND I CAN SLEEP WHEN I LIKE NOW AND MY CHILDREN ARE VERY HAPPY , HAVING OUR OWN SPACE.

    Why must you consult/contact her before you marry another one? It is a choice which I think already made known to them. A man is 'liable' to marry more than one wife.

    Methink the law is fair on both parties after all the females are not left empty handed, why would a man need the wife's consent when she can easily refuse to give the consent. In Cameroun during registry wedding the man is asked if he consents a either polygamy or monogamy and once he signs polygamy he is free to marry a second wife. Its funny though the lawmakes easily found bible references to support their position.

    Let me clarify something. I agree with people's opinion that d africa keep on going backward. But when it comes to d issue of polygamy, other races are worse of. It does not mean only having wives by d number that is bad, most other races are animals as a man would hv slept with more than a hundred ladies. The rate of their sexual PROSMICUITY is second to none. I don't see any much difference between such practice n polygamy

    Polygamy is better than same sex, period!
    Same sex marriage is a disgusting, nauseating anomaly we should be saved from- we should not have it shoved down our throats- as repulsive and sick as it is- because of so-called modernization.
    People are not "born" gay, they form the habit and its a pity the habit is considered repugnant to natural existence- why don't we then allow people do as they please?
    Sleep with "their" animals- afterall, it is theirs?
    Afterall, they might have been born with the innate and inexplicable desire to copulate with animals.
    We should also let cleptomaniacs run loose- they were born that way, weren't they?
    I'm pro- opposite-sex-marriages, Period.

    Are you fucking stupid or something? This is Africa idiot where polygamy do not need western approval to be legal. The bone if contention rather if men should seek their wives before they take more wives. That is subjective to a debate though. Homosexuality is an outright anomaly in Africa, and no matter how perverted the western world has become in the name of human rights and individual sexual preference, and the legality they have attached to it will not change our culture. Shame on you and your warped mentality. I am black and proud to be moron. Oloshi to you. Moreover, I have gay friends Ode

    All this selfhate will take you no where. There is definitely no difference between racist whites,bokoharam and sel fhating blacks as your biggest enemy has always been the black race. But you can never destroy us.
    The only cure is to go read about what ancient blacks had accomplished such as the Ancient benin kingdom, mali empire, Ancient Nubia, igbo pyramid, ancient egypt(egyptian pharohs were 80% pure blacks),adams calander ruin, kingdom of congo,ancient ethopia etc
    Then google list of "African America inventors"
    Then google abt,Benjamin Banneker,he is the great black inventor who designed Washington DC after the excite of Pierre Charles L'Enfant.
    Finally, Columbus and early
    Spanish and Portuguese
    explorerswere able to
    voyage across the Atlantic
    (a distance of 24,000
    Kilometers) thanks to Moorish geographical and
    navigational information,
    in particular maps made
    by Moors traders. Google "Moorish chief" and see what he look like

    African men always wants to outshine their women as if they are in a contest, why? Was it only king's David & Solomon they can use as reference in the bible? Y can't they refer to d new testament where Jesus pronounced one man, one wife? Another way of enslaving women in Kenya, I'm sure this kind of bill will not pass in my beloved Country Nigeria or is some1 thinking otherwise?

    Can't blame the women for doing so. That's kinda barbaric in this modern age. Neglecting vital issues to discuss 'polygamy' is ridiculous.

    This is absolutely disgusting and treats women as property, which we're not. Bringing a second wife should be a decision between husband and wife, the wife should sign a consent to that. It's easy to say "well, she can get a divorce" but the fact that in the eyes of the LAW, women are still seen as tables and chairs is revolting and shows how backward Africa is. Women are equal to men, we are not decorations or sex-toys that you can have as many as you like. What if the tables were turned and there was a law like this except it favoured women? No human, man or woman should be objectified. even though I personally do not like polygamy because I still see it as ownership not a partnership, I still believe people have a right to their own way of life as long as they are not hurting others but this law just proves why it is still a form a slavery and ownership. The fact that your wife's opinion doesn't matter in such a crucial decision shows how much you value her. What if she wanted a new husband? What of if you (the husband) weren't good enough for her? But no, they consider passing that bill, that will go against their one-sided beliefs...plain gender discrimination. Women need to wake up and fight...people need to be educated on gender equality. #peacefighter

    I have been reading some of the comments here, I find most of them very disturbing. "At least (the bill) is than same-sex marriage", "same-sex marriage is an abomination" Are you kidding me? same-sex relationships are between consenting ADULTS which is no one's business, your religious views are YOUR religious views which only YOU care about... and should not to be dictated the rest of us who don't give a crap about it. Throw your religious opinions out the window when you want to pass laws that affect people's lives, the bible itself is contradictory, open to interpretation and so cannot be used as "reference books" for serious issues. It is the same bible the Kenyans found verses supporting their stupid degrading law that someone else found verses in the new testament that refutes it. People argue that being is "un-African" or "it isn't our culture" what the fuck does that even mean? In the past it was in our culture (Igbo culture) to kill twins but that didn't make it right (we know better, we do better), we didn't even know who Jesus or Jehovah was until the Portuguese brought the scriptures to us. We discriminated against people we call Osu but now that's fading away. The point I'm trying make is that things change, culture changes with the people and because something has been a certain way for a long time is not an excuse not to change for the better. Homophobes say it is unnatural to be gay and you are not born gay which is total crap. I have always liked boys (btw I'm female) it wasn't a decision, it came to me naturally and that's the same way it is for gays. Humans aren't the only species exhibit homosexual behaviour, about 500 species (including Giraffes, dogs and bison) display homosexual behaviour...yes we're not animals but this shows it is perfectly natural. If still don't think it is and still insist it is a "choice", the thing is it doesn't matter, it is THEIR choice and it doesn't affect or concern you in any way. People normally associate homosexuality with different disgusting things like pedophilia and bestiality but here's a difference CONSENT! A minor or an animal cannot consent to sexual relations, it is that simple. If a gay man sleeps with a boy that will be molestation because a boy can give consent and the man should be arrested. Someone who engages in sexual relations with an animal is engaging in animal cruelty...why? because the animal cannot give consent...good! Homosexuality is a sexual attraction to or sexual relations with somebody of the same sex...period.
    People who say that legalizing homosexuality will lead to legalizing any of these are morons. Another argument is that gays and lesbians cannot have children...smh, you guys are running out of ideas, tell that to barren women and impotent men. Not all relationships are for babies and I'm pretty sure the LGBTs know they can't have kids with members of the same sex. Besides there are other ways to have kids like through surrogacy, adoption and artificial insemination...open your eyes people, you no longer live in the dark ages where things could only be done naturally...that's the beauty of science. Some people say if we legalize homosexuality then more people will be gay and there will be no more children which will lead to thee extinction of the human race. Now let me point this out, if you "straight" and you feel that if the gay law is passed you'll be forced to sleep with someone of the same sex , then you probably are gay (embrace it). Secondly, I'm very doubtfully that lack of babies will be the downfall of humans, it's more likely that we will kill each other off with all the is hate and discrimination everywhere. to be continued #peacefighter

    And how dare we ask for more children? We live in a world were millions of children die of starvation and diseases, Nigeria has passed a law encouraging child molestation...yes children are being raped by repulsive old men and it is "ok", do you know what happens to those young girls? the diseases, infections, the injuries, the neurological damage and not to talk of the psychological damage. We obviously we cannot take of the children we do have...how dare we ask for more. God said increase and multiply but he forgot to add the part where we should take care of each other. The problem isn't being parents but being good parents who don't sit around and watch stupid laws being passed. Homophobes should admit that the only reason you truly hate the LGBT is because they make them uncomfortable but that is your problem, you don't throw people into prison because it is "convenient" for you, most of you have never even met a gay person in your life and yet you are filled with so much hate hiding behind religion and natural and unnatural BS. So look at us now, in the 21st century and we still haven't recognised women as equals, human beings not property or sex-toys, we kill and prosecute the LGBT community because we don't "like" them and call ourselves Christians who are supposed to be loving and child molestation is legal in Nigeria because we have pedophiles in power. I choose not to lose faith in humanity even though it is very difficult, I believe women will be strong and more and more people will become feminists and fight for our rights, the acceptance of gays is inevitable, our children will be saved from the hands of these evil human beings...after all blacks were slaves for hundreds of years and not seen as equals to whites for many more years, now we have a black American president. By the way, not to bash religious people, I do believe that everyone has a right to their beliefs but heaven is a personal race, leave your religious books in your religious sect, not everyone is going to agree with you, not everyone is going to worship the same God or same way that you do.If you want to save people from going to hell, preach but do not discriminate, do not put them in prison because they don't see eye to eye with you. The only way this world will ever find peace if we thrive individualism and acceptance. That is what our laws should aim to do, accept people are they are not how the are supposed to be as long as they are NOT HURTING ANYONE ELSE. Until then we are just going to be killing each other off. I know that all these African countries including Nigeria are trying to fight against westernization but we are going about it the wrong way, degrading our women, abusing our children and killing our own people only shows that we are stupid and still have a lot to learn. #peacefighter

    Why would you require the consent of the first wife to marry the second?? Very very dumb!

    Do you need the consent of the husband to divorce him???

    Africans and their stupidity, like it is not a free world anymore!

    I dont know why people are abusing you o. Thats the 'best' u chose to make of the situation . Dont answer them, im sure they slp with married men o. See them abusing and going tribalistic. Hungry girls and boys. You want her to leave her 'load' ba. If your heart can handle the emotional stress its no use leaving especially if u can spell out your own terms. Do you know how the society (u and i) treats divorces or seperated women? No matter what u do or say, u no get 'iteriba' and you are an 'asewo'. Afterall, na africa we dey.

    Caan you imagine this rubbish, the world is moving forward, and africans are moving backward. What kind of stupid law is that! can you imagine, those stupid male kenyan lawmakers passing stupid sexist laws, using their numbers to bully the females, and they dont even have a good reason for this law O! saying rubish about the bible. Very useless foolish fellows, their judgement is coming.

    By the way I'm a guy, and I still think that law is messed up and sexist(too openly sexist and biased). Imagine wht the rest of the world will thing of africa(they'll think we are backward monkeys, they already think we're monkeys)
