The Majority Chief Whip and National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for Asawase, Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka, yesterday sent the whole Parliament House into rapturous laughter when he said that he got married to his ‘first’ wife in his second year at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) at the age of 31 and felt proud of that achievement.
He was making a contribution to a statement made by the NDC Member of Parliament for Akatsi North, Peter Nortsu-Kotoe, to condemn the restriction put on female trainee teachers not to get pregnant while being trained in order to become good role models for their pupils and students.
Hon. Muntaka, using himself as an example, said as a student at KNUST, he got married to his ‘first’ wife and that there were many people such as him who got married while being students in school and nothing barred them from that.
His example sent his colleague members in the house into rapturous laughter with the Member of Parliament for Old Tafo, Dr Anthony Akoto Osei, rising on a point of order to tell the House that the Hon. Muntaka was misleading the House because as far as he was concerned he (Muntaka) got married to a young lady just last year.
In reply, the Asawase MP admitted that it was true that he got married again last year and that the lady he got married to was his second wife and that he was proud to be married to two women as a Muslim.
