Men With Secret Families

According to an article on the Crazy Monday pullout, quite a number of men in Kenya have secret families.

These men have families, separate from the official one, which they hide from their wives and only a few of their friends and relatives know about. Such secret families tend to appear during the man’s funeral or when his will is being read.

Mwalimu King’ang’i sees nothing wrong in a man having two families as long as he can provide for both and no one sleeps hungry. He feels that all the man needs to do is ensure his responsibility for both families is taken care of.

My question is, how do you smile at your wife everyday knowing that you are keeping such a big secret? Doesn’t it bother you as a man?

Here is what people had to say:
