Nominated MP David Sankok has urged men to get married while they are still young, preferably in their twenties.
In a social media post, the MP said he got married at 21 and would sharpen knives and sell mitumba to pay his university fees.
"I was elected SONU President at the age of 22 years and from the student leadership salary (9000 per month) & allowances I paid my wife's college fees," he said.
Sankok further advised men against marrying at a late age, saying it makes them worthless.
"Because you married late(at 40) doesn't make you a youth instead it makes you a failure. Because you have used cosmetics to conceal your wrinkles doesn't make you younger,It makes you a spent cartridge or reconditioned vehicle.
Because you got married when you are closer to menopause than puberty doesn't make you younger instead it makes you a harlot in private practice not different from a prostitute in public practice.
Because you remained in your mother's kitchen longer than us doesn't make you a young man instead it makes you a professional begger," he shared.
Sankok added men who marry late can only be used as a bad example while advising children.
"Remember puberty is a signal by God that you are getting ready for marriage. All tools of trade use in marriage get mature and ready at puberty, For example; Development of breasts is for breastfeeding not for attracting men tayari kwa usherati," he wrote.
