Member of Parliament (MP) for Kumbungu Constituency, Ras Mubarak has disclosed that he only remarried on Sunday, February 4, 2018 because his first wife divorced him prior to the 2016 elections.
According to him, the woman packed out and sued for divorce a few weeks before the 2016 election.
The lawmaker was reported to have walked down the aisle with Huseina Mubarak, daughter of the Member of Parliament (MP) for Asawase, Alhaji Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital.
It was gathered that this was his second wife but in his Facebook post, he disclosed that he only remarried after his first wife dumped him and filed for divorce.
“I’ve just woken up to news that I married an additional wife yesterday. Let me put it on record that – though I am unapologetically a believer in polygamy and my religion, and my proud Dagbon tradition and culture permit polygamy, – I just remarried yesterday after my wife then, packed out and sued for divorce a few weeks before the 2016 election. – While we appreciate the media interest in reporting what is news, we wish to encourage the media to report what is factual. Mrs. Huseina Mubarak, My new wife, and I are very grateful to colleagues from the NDC and NPP, friends, family and everyone who supported us in diverse ways. May God bless us all and strengthen every marriage”
