Kenyans have been left adoring the harmonious relationship that the two wives of Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya portrayed at the Mashujaa Day celebrations in Kisii. The two women were pictured walking beside the Head of the council of Governors as they made their way to the VIP podium. This is deemed as a rare occurrence since many polygamous families are often marred with chaos and unending competition.
Priscillah Oparanya and Caroline Oparanya have now left Kenyan women in polygamous marriages picking lessons of peaceful coexistence. The two have been serving as the first ladies of the Oparanya led county for a period of 8 years now. The ODM party leader has umpteenth terms warned his opponents not to use his marriage status to dissuade voters.
The county boss is however not the only prominent politician who has adopted the marriage culture. Outspoken Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi also leads a polygamous life.
The Tangatanga politician is on record to have admitted to having four wives. COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli is also a man of many wives. The flamboyant trade unionist is known for being proud of his status.His third wife, Mary Kilobi, is currently stationed at KTN as a news anchor.
