John Dumelo calls for the legalisation of polygamy in Ghana
Ghanian actor-turned-politician, John Dumelo has said polygamy should be legalized in Ghana since most men have side chicks.
He wrote: “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 I think it’s time for that to be repealed.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 stautus because they peroform the same duties.”
John Dumelo also added that polyandry should legalized for women to be allowed to marry more than one man.
Mrs Gifty Mawunya Dumelo, his wife replied to his post, writing: “Equal rights indeed …babe hurry home and meet my new new husband.”
