Kiambu Woman Representative Gathoni wa Muchomba has urged women to let their husbands take control of the family unit.
Wa Muchomba says the move will restore “order” in the institution of marriage, which, of late, has been plagued with episodes of violence.
While addressing a group of women in Nakuru County on Monday, July 23, wa Muchomba said: “A society that has patriarchal order, has order. A society that has matriarchal leadership, has issues.
“We [women] must all accept to let men be in charge of our families. If you don’t do that, we would have a lot of issues; and those are some of the issues that some of us as Women Reps are sorting out every day.”
In April this year, wa Muchomba sparked mixed reactions in the social space when he urged men with financial might to consider marrying more than one wife.
