Lady Justice Teresiah Matheka has claimed that wives should be paid by their husbands for doing house chores and carrying pregnancy.
She argued that the chores done by women in their houses would be paid for if they were delegated to house helps who work under payslip. She added that wives should further be paid for carrying pregnancy for the 9 months. According to her, nowadays there are surrogates who are ready to do the task at a cost meaning that wives should also be paid for doing so.
The Lady Justice therefore urged all women married as house wives to never again claim that they are jobless but rather affirm that they are employed at their homes.
Her opinion triggered mixed reactions online with majority of Kenyans online claiming that wives should not be paid as they are only doing their responsibilities. Some however supported her sentiments claiming that most men disrespect their wives claiming that they stay at home doing nothing.
