Read what she wrote below.
‘Let me take this opportunity to congratulate my husband @vanmohamed for marrying a second wife. Because my Islamic religious practice allows such an arrangement.
I advised him to marry another woman. My decision to get a co-wife was triggered by the nature of my job, which forces me to travel away from home often, consequently depriving my husband of basic needs in a marriage.
‘I thank him for understanding me and heeding to my request. I am glad to welcome on board @only_chibeb as a co-wife, who will help me in a big way to look after our husband, a responsibility which is very demanding.’
Assalaam Alaykum, Nichukue nafasi hii kumpongeza Mume wangu @vanmohamed kwa kuongeza Mke wa Pili. Kwa kuwa dini yetu ya kiislam inaruhusu, wazo la kufanya hivyo lilitoka kwangu, kulingana na uzito wa majukumu yangu nalazimika mda mwingi kuwa mbali na nyumbani na hivyo mume wangu kukosa huduma za msingi. Namshkuru kwa kunielewa na kulifanyia kazi ombi langu, hatimaye nimempata mwenzangu @only_chibeb wa kusaidiana nae majukumu mazito ya ulezi wa mume. Alhamdulillah, M/Mungu ametupa rizki na uwezo, hivyo tunapaswa kutumia neema hizi na wengine. Mavazi ya mume wangu nimeyaandaa mwenyewe, yaa rabb atupe stara inshaaAllah. Karibu sana kwenye familia @only_chibeb nimekupokea kwa mikono miwili na inshaaAllah M/Mungu atupe maskilizano na tuishi na mume wetu kwa wema till Jannah InshaaAllah. Baaraka llahu lakumaa, wabaraka alaykumaa, wajamaa baynakumaa fil khaeyr❤️❤️🙏🏼
