The Ghanaian actor cum politician who is well known for his creative scene over the past days has been the talk of Ghana following his recent comment on polygamy. For agitating for the marriage and ordinance law against polygamy to be repealed explained that most married men have women they have affairs with outside their marriage.
The actor took to his Facebook and Twitter handle and posted that;
“Under customary law and Mohammedans law Cap 129, a man can marry more than one woman. Under the marriage Ordinance 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 I think it’s time for that to be repealed.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.”
In the post as seen by thebbcghana.com, John Dumelo added that in the same vein, polyandry should be legalized for women to be allowed to marry more than one man.
His wife, Mrs Gifty Mawunya Dumelo, replied his post informing him to prepare to meet her new husband too at home, should the law against polygamy be repealed because she believes men and women must have equal rights.
“Equal rights indeed …babe hurry home and meet my new husband,” she wrote beneath her husband’s post, which has now been removed from his Instagram page.
