Kenyan men have confidently said that they would never give their women a dime if they separated. Many were arguing that once they break up, kila mtu apambane na hali yake.
This was based on the morning discussion on Classic 105 in which Dr Dre’s wife Nicole Young is asking for $2M in monthly spousal support.
Maina Kageni posed the question of whether Kenyan ladies are paid spousal support or alimony when they part ways with their husbands?
To say the men were pissed would be an understatement.
Below are some of their reactions.
‘WOMEN SHOULD KNOW WE ARE DOING THEM A FAVOUR BY MARRYING THEM AND GIVING THEM THE TITLE MRS. INSTEAD SHE SHOULD BE THE ONE TO PAY ME WHEN THINGS DON’T WORK BETWEEN US.
WHY SHOULD WE SHARE THE WEALTH?
IF YOU LEAVE ME GO AND ASK YOUR DAD FOR THE DOWRY I PAID.
WAS SHE IN THE MARRIAGE FOR THE CASH, PLUS NOWADAYS WOMEN DON’T TAKE MARRIAGE SERIOUSLY,’ SAID CAPTAIN KALE.
Another caller added,
“TUKIWACHANA WEWE BEBA TV, PESA KATAFUTE BECAUSE MY MONEY IS MINE.”
Miss Njogu shared how a cousin of hers told his now ex-wife that the only thing he could allow her to carry, was her shadow.
‘MY COUSIN TOLD HIS WIFE THE ONLY THING SHE’S TAKING FROM THEIR HOUSE WAS HER SHADOW ONLY, NA HIVO NDIVYO ALIENDA BILA HATA NGUO ZAKE, AKI SOME MEN THOUGH.’
‘HOW CAN YOU CONTINUE FEEDING A COW THAT YOU HAVE STOPPED MILKING? UNLESS UMEROGWA MY FRIEND.’
As a man would you give your wife an alimony/child support if you broke up?
