High Court Rules in Favor of House Wives, Terms it a Full-time Job

A law can be considered as a sharp sword that cuts with both ends. In Kenya, the law is embodied in the Kenya constitution and judges assists in interpretation and thus make judgement.

Women all over the country are in jubilation mood following the latest rulling by Justice Teresia Matheka.

Rulling in a matrimonial property dispute, justice Matheka has declared that the work of a house wife should be considered as a full time paying job.

She said that it would be very unfair for a court to rule that house wives have not played any part in the contribution of the family financial status.

She further said that the house wives should not consider themselves as jobless since they offer full time service to the family despite the service being invisible.

Justice Teresia Matheka said that the roles that the house wives play are of cooking, washing and raising children is equivalent to that of a fully employed domestic worker.
