There is a concept in commerce called 'division of labour' which means each unit is supposed to play its role which it is best suited to do. The idea behind it is to increase efficiency and ensure high quality in the line of production.
In similar fashion, this concept can be applied to people in an organisation or in any set up that they must concentrate on jobs they are best suited for in order to maximise efficiency and high quality.
Members of Parliament are elected to make laws on behalf of the people and to ensure there is development in their respective constituencies.
They receive induction in this area so that they can discharge their duties with efficiency. Their constituents expect the MPs to serve them in that respect.
However, it appears that some MPs think that they are all rounders who can do more than that and act as marriage counsellors which is not one of their duties.
If this matter had been handled by marriage counsellors, probably this marriage would still be intact.
Not that we condone abuse of women in marriage by men, but that there are proper channels and authorities who can ably handle such matters.
As community leaders, let us not assume more power than we have.
