Two Kenyan men have signed an agreement to "marry" the same woman, reports say.Source: BBC
The woman had been having affairs with both men for more than four years and apparently refused to choose between them.
The agreement sets out a rotation plan whereby Sylvester Mwendwa and Elijah Kimani will stay in her house and states they will both help raise any children she bears.
Lawyers said their "marriage" would be legally recognised if they could prove polyandry was part of their custom.
Mr Mwendwa and Mr Kimani drafted the agreement after realising they had both been having an affair with the woman in Mombasa County for more than four years, the local Daily Nation newspaper reports.
The laws we have do not talk about it but for such a union to be recognised in Kenya, it has to be either under the statutory law or as customary marriage”
Polygamous marriages often take place in Kenya, but wife-sharing is unheard of.
