Ghanaian actor and politician, John Dumelo has called for the legalization of polygamy for both men and polyandry for women.
Using Mohammedan and customary law as a case study, the actor cum politician stressed that a large part of the population who are Muslims and members of the African Traditional religion do not find any problem with it even though its considered an illegal lifestyle.
He shared a photo of himself and his wife and urged Ghanaians to repeal the laws that support the Christian value of one man, one woman, to allowing married men like him to elevate the status of their sidechicks into wives.
Adding that women should also be allowed to chose multiple husbands because it is ‘perfect’ for both ways.

Speaking further on Citi FM, he noted that although he does not believe in Polygamy, there is nothing wrong with engaging in the act once the family has enough resources to take care of the multiple wives and Children.
“I feel that there’s nothing wrong with it. I mean if our brothers and sisters who are Muslims are doing it perfectly, why not Christians? Provided you can take care of your family and your two or three wives that’s fine and I mean, I speak to a lot of Muslim friends of mine and they’re okay with it, personally I don’t believe in it but I feel it’s good for Ghana.
“The reversal is also perfect, do it both ways, do it for women also but naturally, men are like that and women aren’t so you will find less women doing that but I think should be legalized”, he stated.
