Why this Jubilee Woman rep want Kikuyu men to marry several wives

You have to get more children.

The lawmaker, who once survived impeachment form local over her conduct, said that men who sire children with different women should consider taking them as their additional wives.

She added over the weekend that bringing up children in the absence of their fathers had led to serious societal problems such as alcoholism among the youth.

“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 community, 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,” she said.

According to MP, if revisiting polygamous will be the solution, it should be explored. She asked the community not to be pretentious that some of the social problems affecting the young people are because of poor parenting.

Ms Wamuchomba spoke at Violence Recovery Centre at Wangunyu in Karura, Kiambaa Sub-County on Monday. The centre will be used to rehabilitate alcoholics by helping them undergo a three-month program.

The lawmaker said some young people who showed up in the program only spoke of their mothers, an indication that their fathers had abandoned them.

“We need to be honest, these children who are raised by single mothers, where are there 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,” said Ms Wamuchomba
