There is a proposed amendment to the Constitution seeking to scrap a law that says wives are entitled to half of a man’s wealth if and when they divorce.
This would mean that in the case of a divorce a woman would not receive 50% of the family property as it is at the moment, having in mind that she is the one who will leave with the kids and be responsible for them.
Quite a shocker isn’t it?
This formed the basis of Classic 105 conversation this morning with Maina Kageni and Mwalimu Kingang’i, who sought to know the views of listeners.
Maina Kageni sought views from married couples asking them if they are in favor of this proposed amendment.
For some reason, most Kenyan men who called in said that they would want the bill to be passed because women don’t deserve all that money or property, coming out as selfish.
On the other hand, most women expressed disappointment at how the men don’t respect them to the point of not wanting to give half of the wealth in unfortunate case of a divorce.
Listen to the audio below as Kenyan men and women go head to head in regards to this proposed amendment.
