Marriage Bill draws mixed reactions

14 November 2013, 12:00

Nairobi - The passing of the controversial Matrimonial Property Bill by MPs has elicited mixed reactions from various people, with some terming it unconstitutional.

According to the Bill, when married partners want to separate, the matrimonial property will no longer be shared equally. It will instead be shared according to one’s contribution, The Standard reports.

This according to the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights secretary and former FIDA executive director, Patricia Nyaundi, is against the Constitution.

Nyaundi expressed her disappointment with the legislators saying that they are the people who should be upholding the Constitution but they are not doing so as required.

On the other hand, Maendeleo ya Wanaume Chairperson Nderitu Njoka backed the approval of the Bill saying it was good since many women have been after their husbands’ wealth, which he claims they have not worked for.
