Misheck Nyandoro, a Zimbabwean man, has claimed that death is the only thing that stands in the way of him having more children and wives.
In a recent interview with The Herald, the controversial polygamist revealed that he is planning to take his 17th wife soon so that he can add to his 151 children.
“MINE IS A PROJECT. THIS POLYGAMY IS A PROJECT THAT I HAVE UNDERTAKEN SINCE 1983 AND WILL END WITH MY DEATH. WHENEVER THAT DAY DEATH VISITS, IS WHEN I WILL STOP MARRYING AND FATHERING CHILDREN.
I AM PLANNING ON TAKING IN MY 17TH WIFE THIS WINTER AND THE FORMALITIES ARE ALREADY BEING WORKED ON.”
The well-known polygamist disclosed that having several children is a means of financial protection, which he refers to as a “mission.” He made the erroneous argument that Western Europe is working on a major initiative to reduce Africa’s population, which he opposes.
“FROM MY WORKING CHILDREN AND GETTING PAMPERED WITH MONEY THROUGH ECOCASH, ALMOST DAILY AND 11 OF MY CHILDREN HAVE PUT ME ON FUNERAL POLICY. I GET GOODS FROM SONS-IN-LAW.
I HAVE NOT STOPPED MAKING BABIES, THE SKY IS THE LIMIT. I HAVE NOT STOPPED MARRYING EITHER, GOD ALLOWING, I WILL GO EVEN UP TO 100 WIVES AND MAYBE 1000 CHILDREN. WESTERN EUROPE HAS A BIG PROJECT TO REDUCE AFRICA’S POPULATION AND AM AGAINST THAT. I AM A WAR VETERAN, THE GOVERNMENT PAYS FOR MY CHILDREN’S FEES. I HAVE NO PROBLEM.”
The 66-year-old also revealed that life is good because he does not go to work and instead sits in a shed where he is cooked by each of his 16 wives, who cook food separately for him. He claims that he only consumes the best-prepared food and discards the remainder.
“EVERY WIFE COOKS HER BEST EVERY DAY BECAUSE THE RULE IS I ONLY EAT WHAT IS DELICIOUS AND I THROW AWAY WHAT IS NOT TASTY. EVERY WIFE SUBSCRIBES TO THAT RULE AND DOES NOT GET ANNOYED WHEN I RETURN HER BADLY COOKED FOOD TO HER. IT IS THE RULE HERE. REJECTED FOOD SHOULD MAKE HER COOK BETTER NEXT TIME”
