Actor and politician John Dumelo says there’ nothing wrong with polygamy hence should be legalized.
The NDC parliamentary candidate for Ayawaso constituency speaking in an interview on Citi FM’s Traffic Avenue, said that even though he would not practice the act, he thinks men who want to have more wives are at liberty to do that.
“Personally, I don’t believe in it [polygamy] but I feel that there is nothing wrong with it. If the Muslims are doing it perfectly, why not Christians? Provided you can take care of your two or three wives, that’s fine. I speak to a lot of Muslims and both the men and women are okay with it,” he said.
He also added that “…I feel it [polygamy] is good for Ghana.” he told the host of the show Jessica Saforo.
John Dumelo added that women who want to have more than one husband should also be allowed to do so because it will be discriminatory to do it for only the men.
“You can’t just do it for men. Do it for women as well…” he stated.
