Ghanaian actor, John Dumelo is advocating for a repeal of the marriage and ordinance law in Ghana.
According to the parliamentary candidate for the Ayawaso West Wogoun Constituency, married men have extra marital affairs, hence it’s only right that they be allowed to legally marry the women they date outside of their marriage.
In a now deleted Instagram post, the entrepreneur wrote:
“Under customary law and Mohammedans law Cap 129, a man can marry more than one woman. Under the marriage Ordinace 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 I think it’s time for that to be repealed.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 stautus because they perform the same duties. In the same vein, polyandry should also be legalized. Women should be allowed to marry more than one man.”
The actor is married with a son.
