Kenya polygamy bill arouses fears

Rights groups decry bill that would allow men to marry as many women as they want without their wives' approval.

    Kenya's parliament has passed a bill that would allow men to marry as many women as they want, without permission from their other wives.

    The government insists that the bill, which still needs to be approved by the president before it becomes law, will protect women's rights, despite outrage from human rights groups.

    Al Jazeera's Tania Page reports from Narok, a town west of the capital, where the move has sparked serious concerns.
