Laikipia Woman Representative Catherine Waruguru says that she is proud of being a second wife and there is nothing wrong with being in a polygamous marriage.

Speaking during a Women conference in Nanyuki on Saturday, the first time Member of Parliament commended President Uhuru’s decision to sign into law the Marriage Act on Wednesday last week.

“You saw the President signing into law the Marriage Act the other day. As women, we must refrain from being distracted by societal decisions” she said.

Waruguru, who is the second wife to Nanyuki-based lawyer Kiprotich Kiget said she has no apologies for being in a polygamous marriage and it was her personal decision to marry the lawyer.

In a statement last week, state house confirmed that the Bill, which “consolidates various laws relating to marriage”, had been signed into law.

The Bill was approved by parliament last month and it legally recognizes polygamous marriages.

“Marriage is the voluntary union of a man and a woman, whether in a monogamous or polygamous union,” a statement by the presidency said.
