14 September 2015, 21:37
Nakuru - A member of parliament has advised men to marry more than one wife as one way of combating prostitution in Kenyan towns.
Nakuru MP, David Gikaria said that if men married more than one wives then prostitution would end because all single women will get husbands.
Speaking Monday at a free medical camp he had organized in his constituency, Gikaria said that prostitution is on the increase in Kenyan towns because women lack husbands.

“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 wives,” said Gikaria.
He added: “Why should we allow these women to suffer cold at night when we can take care of them in our homes.”
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.
