Kenyan politician has urged men to marry more than one wife as one
way of combating prostitution. David Gikaria, a Nakuru, Kenya Member of
Parliament said that if men married more than one wife then prostitution
would end because all single women will get husbands.
Speaking on Monday, September 14 at a free medical camp he had organized
in his constituency, Gikaria, who has three wives, said that
prostitution is on the increase
in Kenyan towns because women lack
“There are so many women in our towns who don’t have husbands or men in
their lives and this forces them to resort to prostitution and this
thing can be solved if only men agree to marry more than one wife,” he
“Why should we allow these women to suffer cold at night when we
can take care of them in our homes.” he added.
Gikaria gave his own example saying that he has three wives and called
on men to learn from him.
“I think those people who have money especially MPs are well off
should lead from the front by marrying many wives,” said Gikaria.
