Why do Kenyan men remarry so quickly after being widowed?
And how long should men wait to remarry after death of a spouse asked Maina during the Wednesday morning conversation.
Deep down, most women feel that men on their own are needier than women in similar circumstances, emotionally needier, and in greater need of conjugal support bringing up a family.
On Wednesday morning, Maina and co-host Mwalimu debated the matter.
This follows a question that arose after the burial of Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso.
One of her girl pals begged her husband to wait and honor her memory.
Maina sought to know: Why don’t Kenyan men cherish the memory of their late wives: why do they remarry in a month or two?
Mwalimu defended men saying there is pressure from society to fill that gap
We are weak, the people around us don’t give us peace, inakuanga ngumu to say it honestly the support mechanism makes it hard, like when you are invited for drinks by other men that’s when it starts, you know people are pushed, some women just throw themselves at you and you are not ready, so stop comparing men and women we are very different
Maina wasn’t convinced saying ‘Kenyan men mlirogwa’
how can you in such a very short time, bring another woman? Why do Kenyan men remarry so quickly, it’s like forget her she is gone? Have you no shame, it’s a matter of honor and respect, ladies you need to ask your husband today, how long will it take you to remarry if I die today?
The argument didn’t stop there over the matter, and Maina had his last word
It’s rude to remarry before your wife is cold in the grave, Maina shouted
and can you imagine the impact on the kids you have with her?
