The vast majority of professing Christians believe that the Bible teaches that monogamy is the only acceptable form of  marriage and that polygamy violates God's law concerning marriage but Member of Parliament (MP) for Kumbungu Constituency, Ras Mubarak has said he is a believer in polygamy.

He said he believes in polygamy, according to his religion.

The MP on Sunday, February 4, 2018 walked down the aisle with one Huseina, daughter of the MP for Asawase, Alhaji Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak in Kumasi as his second wife.

Ras Mubarak took to Facebook to thank the media and his colleague MPs, family and friends for supporting his marriage.

 

He wrote: "Let me put it on record that - though I am unapologetically a believer in polygamy and my religion, and my proud Dagbon tradition and culture permit polygamy, I have one wonderful wife - Mrs. Huseina Mubarak."
