Beatrice Adagala,Woman Representative of Vihiga County has promised to pay dowry for broke men in her county.
Speaking at Elikongo in Emuhaya sub-county,Adagala said”I don’t want men in Vihiga County to continue pouncing on my young girls. If they cannot marry, maybe because of lack of money to pay dowry, let them come and talk to me. As a mother, I will understand,”
Adagala was accompanied by Buasli MCA Gladys Analo where she handed beneficiaries of NGAAF bursary cheques.
She said loneliness among men has been causing the increased number of rape cases.Instead she called out to all men who are lack expertise in courtship to open up and get assistance.
Lack of dowry in Vihiga County has made men turn to the bottle which leads to inappropriate behaviors.
“Most of those involved, often blame alcohol and the devil,” said the Women Rep as she urged men to take up the offer.
