Is Lagos right to criminalise deserting fathers?
Earlier this week the Babatunde Fashola, the Lagos State governor, signed into law that forces men to support their children. Men who impregnate and abandon women could now face prosecution.
The rights of children born outside marriage are already protected by Kenya's constitution. But how enforceable is such a law? And how much of a difference does it make?
Is this going too far or would you like to see the same law in your country?
