I was recently reading a feature in a magazine about Cecilia Mwangi, the famous beauty queen of the anti-jigger campaign. She unapologetically confessed to being the second wife of one honorable Danson Mungatana. This reminded me of a similar incidence that happened a few years back, when the songstress Linda Muthama also came out and confessed to being a second wife. This news caused such an uproar from the public with some expressing their disgust. Since then, I have been trying to understand why most people were in such shock I mean, this is nothing new after all. We are all aware that some of the Maasai people still practice polygamy and I am yet to see them make the cover of any magazine. Our forefathers married more than one wife which was in fact viewed as a sign of being wealthy and even accorded one more respect in the society. Don’t get me wrong though, I am not a supporter of the act of having more than one wife, no. All I am saying is that history repeats itself and so people should not have reacted as if they had just seen a U.F.O. Remember when our parents rocked bell-bottoms back in their day, and just when they were going out of fashion they came back with a bang? So, don’t act so shocked if you one day wake up only to find all vehicles have been replaced with horses as a means of transport. Relax, it has all been done before!
