Photo: Young Man Who Married Two Women On Same Day Tell Others To Do Same


A young Somali man named Bashir Mohammed has gotten himself trending online after he got married to two women last week in Kenya.

It was gathered that the wedding ceremony that was well attended by many guests in Sinai village, Ahmed Dhagah district, in Kenya got the guest surprised after they got to know that the groom was getting married to two brides but he told them that he is doing so simply because he wants to have many children.

Though Polygamy is allowed in Somali culture, it is rare for a man to marry two women at the same time, like Mohammed who stated in an interview that the idea of marrying the two brides on the same day was his way of ensuring that they wouldn’t get ‘jealous’ as well as ensuring they felt equal since they would be aware from the onset that they were in a polygamous marriage.

While speaking in a short interview with BBC Somali, Mohamed who disclosed that he courted both brides Iqra and Nimo for about eight months and convinced them to marry him said;

“I used to bring them together to socialize with me at my home, I used to say openly to both of them that I love them. They were satisfied.”

“I will encourage other men to do it, if they can afford it,” he added.
