A Zimbabwean man who is with sixteen wives and a hundred and fifty-one children has said he is adding one more wife to his collections soon.
The polygamist, Misheck Nyandoro, while speaking in a recent interview with The Herald, said he swore an oath into polygamy 38 years ago and will not stop now until his death.
The Johanne Marange Apostolic sect member said Western Europe has a big task to accomplish in reducing Africa’s population which he is against that. According to him, he now earns huge from the lifestyle as he usually receives money from his sons-in-laws.
Nyandoro said he is adding more fives soon as the older wives are no longer having much interested in sex.
He said: “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.”
“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,” Nyandoro added.
“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
“My church does not allow women to cook together. Each must cook on her own in as much as she sleeps in her own bedroom.”
He also boasted that his only duty is to make sure that his wives are satisfied in the bedroom. Nyandoro said he takes into account a number of variables in coming up with the duty roster for his 16 wives’ conjugal rights. Claiming that he does not take any sex enhancement drug to satisfy his wives, he added that he is the only person who knows and maintains the duty roster.
The polygamist added: “I am strong and feel as strong as I was when I was 18. I give conjugal rights to an average of four wives a night and I do the duty roaster personally. I go to the targeted bedrooms one by one. That is my job. There is no other job I do. They are all catered for and you can see they are happy. Afternoon conjugal rights are not considered during the duty roster, for, that is mainly accidental.
“The moment I see the next woman, she is a completely new person and I feel like I haven’t done anything before. There is no magic but a sound mind. Never be lied to about juju or magic or anything. To me, every wife is a new person. It feels different. When I am dealing with each wife, I tune myself to her age and demands so that we operate from the same level. What I do with the young wives is not what I do with the elderly ones.”
“At times I am chased away or told to go for the younger ones. I am not employed. My duty is to satisfy my wives. I know each of them personally and I satisfy them accordingly.”
He also said that he followed his church’s tenets when choosing a new wife and will never marry someone who was married before or someone who is a minor.
Speaking about how he wedded his 16 wives, Nyandoro said: “I married all my women according to church discipline. I never married an under-aged girl. I wait for 18 years. The church does not allow me to marry someone who was once married. NO!”
“I have paid lobola accordingly. None of the wives was organised for me. I approached each one of them personally.”
Naija News understands that 19 children of the polygamist are employed. 6 are members of the Zimbabwe National Army while 2 are members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police. Another 11 are employed in different professions. He also has 13 sons-in-law after marrying off 13 daughters.
