London: Two Kenyan men have reportedly signed an agreement to marry the same woman, after she refused to make a choice between them, after having affairs with both over four years.

The agreement has set out a rota for Sylvester Mwendwa and Elijah Kimani to stay in the woman`s house, who is a widow with two children, and stated that they both will help raise any children she bears from them, the BBC reports.

Mwendwa told the BBC that he loved the woman and most of all, her children, and said the contract would set boundaries and keep peace between two of them.

Meanwhile, Kenyan family lawyer Judy Thongori said the marriage would only be recognised, if they could prove polyandry as part of their custom.

People have reacted with shock to the marriage, arguing that it is not acceptable in terms of their culture, religion or the law, the report added.
