Ghanaian actor John Dumelo has said that it is time polygamy became legalised because most married men, according to him, have side chicks.
The multiple-award winner made this known in a post on social media, agitating for the marriage and ordinance law against polygamy to be repealed.
According to the actor-turned-politician, side chicks need to be elevated to the status of a wife as they perform same duties.
He wrote: “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 I think it’s time for that to be repealed.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.”
Dumelo, in another post, said polyandry should be legalised for women to be allowed to marry more than one man.
JohnDumelo tied the knot with his lover and son’s mother, Gifty Mawuenya, earlier this year.
The new couple exchanged their marital vows in the presence of their maid of honour, Nadia Buari, and Fred Nuamah, standing by them to show support.
