The Member of Parliament (MP) for Kumbungu Constituency, Ras Mubarak has denied media reports that he has married a second wife.

In a Facebook post, he indicated that he only remarried on Sunday (February 4, 2018) because his first wife divorced him few weeks before the 2016 elections.

He stated that his former wife packed out and filed for a divorce just before election 2016.

“I’ve just woken up to the news that I married an additional wife yesterday. 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 just remarried yesterday after my wife then, packed out and sued for divorce a few weeks before the 2016 election.”

Most of his colleague MPs were present to grace the occasion.

Ras Mubarak was grateful to his colleagues for supporting him during the event.

“While we appreciate the media interest in reporting what is news, we wish to encourage the media to report what is factual. Mrs Huseina Mubarak, My new wife, and I are very grateful to colleagues from the NDC and NPP, friends, family and everyone who supported us in diverse ways. May God bless us all and strengthen every marriage.”

In the Islamic custom, a man is obliged to marry more than one if he is capable to cater for them. It is however frowned on to marry beyond four.
