“I used to invite them to my house,” he told BBC Somali.

“I told them openly that I loved them and they were satisfied. I decided to marry them the same day to avoid any form of jealousy. “

“I will encourage other men to do the same, if they can afford it,” he added.

According to Mohamed, polygamy is not prohibited in Somalia, but it is unusual to see a man marrying two women the same day.

Mohamed married Iqra and Nimo in the Sinai village on June 22nd.
