A High Court sitting in Nairobi today gave a directive seeking to force men to pay salaries to their housewives. Justice Teresiah Matheka who presided over a domestic dispute at the court, claimed that being a housewife is a full time job that should be payable.
She argued that in the absence of the housewife, the duties such as washing, cleaning and cooking would be undertaken by a paid domestic maid.
The judge firther argued that the nine months pregnancy period should be used as a factor in deciding family related disputes. She added that some women 'surrogates' are paid to carry a pregnancy for couples yet the housewife does it for free.
Juge Teresiah's remarks comes barely a month after chief Justice Martha Koome celebrated her 100 days in office. The ruling is expected to attract bottomless debate from both genders.
