Ali Kiba’s wife Amina Khalef has spoken out about whether or not the singer is allowed to take on a second wife which their religion -Islam- allows.
Amina and the Chekecha Cheketua hitmaker tied the knot last month in Mombasa, in an invite-only event that was graced by the who-is-who in the political arena and entertainment industry.
Amina opened up about the whole second wife issue during a interview with a Tanzanian based radio station:
“Siwezi. Mungu ndio anajua. Mungu ndio amepanga kila kitu.’

In 2015, the High Court in Nairobi ruled that women had a right to decide who their co-wives would be in polygamous marriages.
Justice Mumbi Ngugi said men should not be allowed to register polygamy without the consent of their wives.
Mombasa Woman Rep Asha Hussein waded into the controversial polygamy debate last month asking President Uhuru Kenyatta to lead by example.
During a workshop on Affirmative Action in Mombasa, the legislator challenged the President to marry a second wife and take her to State House.
The Mombasa county MP said majority of the women are against the proposal, and since the president signed the Marriage Bill into law in 2014, “he should then lead in the implementation”.
Gathoni Wa Muchomba, Kiambu women representative recently suggested that men should be encouraged to have many wives, a statement that was not well taken in by many Kenyans.
