Housewives should be remunerated
As much as Salvado is Ugandan, his decision seems to have borrowed heavily from a recent ruling by a Kenyan court that being a housewife is a full-time job.
Nakuru High Court Judge Teresia Matheka ruled that taking care of the home is not an easy task, therefore, should come with some form of compensation.
The judge argued that it was unfair to overlook the physical, emotional and psychological contributions that housewives offer their husbands towards a household's progress.
"A husband who works may claim ownership of the property while sidelining the wife, yet the latter has the rights given she spent time at home looking after the children and overseeing other family affairs," she opined.
Judge Matheka added that the nine months a woman endures a pregnancy should also be considered by judges while presiding over cases on family disputes.
She made the landmark ruling while presiding over a case in which an estranged wife had sued her former husband seeking to have their marital property sold and the proceeds equally distributed amongst the two.
