- A Kenyan member of parliament, Millie Odhiambo, recently said that, as a woman, she cannot stand suffering of any child as a result of differences between parents
- She maintained that taking care of all her husband's out-of-wedlock kids will save her after-death drama
- Also, Odhiambo challenged men to care of all their children both born in and out of marriage
- The legislator is currently drafting a bill that will compel men to indicate the number of children born while alive
A woman recently challenged men to care of all their children both born in and out of marriage. Millie Odhiambo said, as a woman and wife, she is ready to take care of all the children her husband may have had out of wedlock.
This, she argued, would unite the family and avoid unnecessary drama in the event her husband Magugu Mabona died.
“I have told Mabona to bring back all children he sired out of marriage. I am ready to take care of them because I don’t want any child to suffer because their father and mother are not married. If my husband Magugu Mabona gave birth to some children out of wedlock, let him incorporate them in my family,” she said.
She also used the same opportunity to urge men to patch things up with their lovers and take parental responsibilities before it is too late.
“Start preparing because the Bill will compel men to be responsible. All children are creatures of God and they deserve their father’s love. Let no man ignore these children,” she added.
The politician was speaking during a ground-breaking ceremony for Kenya Medical Training College, Maris campus in Mbita.
The controversial three-time legislator is currently drafting a bill that will compel men to indicate the number of biological children while alive.
"I am bringing an amendment to the Marriage Act compelling all men to publicly declare their children in and out of wedlock while alive and in case they don't, the mothers should declare. Mourning with shocks and counter shocks can cause another funeral," she posted on August 1.
Recently, an actress named Kudirat Ogunro said that she is ready to tolerate it if her husband decides to have a girlfriend. According to her, by nature, men cannot be faithful to one woman so it would not be a foolish step to prevent her man from having an extra bae.
