Six things to know about polygamy warrior Wamuchomba


Kiambu Woman Representative Gathoni Wamuchomba is not in a polygamous marriage, but she recently won over traditionalists with her views on polygamy.
On Monday, the former journalist urged rich Kikuyu men to embrace polygamy instead of siring children outside marriage.
Of the 46 Woman Reps in the current parliament, she perhaps stands out as the most famous for her frankness in often contentious issue.
She made headlines last year for audaciously demanding a higher pay for MPs, contrary to a position taken by her Jubilee party leader President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“I want to be paid well. I worked. I fought it out to be a Member of Parliament. I campaigned using my resources. I want to be paid well. I want to be honoured for who I am and what I have been able to achieve,” Ms Wamuchomba said during an interview with NTV.
She later appologised for the remarks.
