Cabinet's attemtp to modernize marriage by legalizing polygamy amounts to opening a Pandora box to say the least. The demons crawling from that box would be so scary to imagine leave alone see. Imagine Mary Wambui taking cue from Jane Kanyotu!
The cabinet is at it again, pulling another fast one that will only invite President Kibaki's foul mood. Instead of focusing on weighty issues geared towards feeding the starving nation, here they are brandishing a smokescreen in the name of modern marriage law.
The irony of legalizing come-we-stay and allowing polygamy is a sure recipe for domestic anarchy. While it may sound modern by demanding the rich spouse to support his/her partner, introducing plural matrimony is to wreck havoc in the same homes they intend to protect.
Just imagine if Mary Wambui were to stake a claim due to obvious reasons. The cabinet is upto no good by compounding Kibaki's already RED mood with Uncle Sam by rubbing the raw family feud. With our ministers' propensity to have mistresses in every corner of the country, the courts are destined to be very busy besides official raiding of media houses.
