A Johanne Marange Apostolic sect member who has a massive 151 children from 16 wives has revealed that he is not stopping anytime soon.
Misheck Nyandoro from Mbire in Mashonaland Central said that he regards his polygamous marriage as a project and has no intention to stop marrying wives or fathering children. He said that he will only stop when he is dead. In fact, Nyandoro is planning on marrying 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,’ he told The Herald
According to Nyandoro, his “project” is now bearing fruit as he is constantly receiving money and goodies from his children who are now working and from his sons-in-law.
“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.”
At the moment, 19 of Nyandaro’s children 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.
Nyandaro who is a pensioner said that he has no worries are his children are educated by the government since he is a war veteran.
“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.”
According to the 66-year-old, life is good as he does not go to work. Every day he sits in a shed and is fed by all his 16 wives who all prepare food for him separately. He said that he only eats the best-prepared food and throws away the rest.
“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.”
The sexagenarian boasts that his only duty is to make sure that his wives are satisfied in the bedroom. He says he takes into account a number of variables in coming up with the duty roster for his 16 wives’ conjugal rights. He is the only person who knows and maintains the duty roster.
“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.”
He also said that he does not use any drugs to boost his libido or to aid him in the bedroom during his marathon sessions.
“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.
“But again the reason why I am marrying two or three more in the recent future is that the elderly wives are no longer much interested in sex.
“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.
“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.”
Since he is not employed, Nyandoro’s huge family survives by farming. He was recently allocated 93 hectares near Mvurwi Mountains after the government took note of his family’s need. He said that after every harvest, he makes sure to share equitably according to the needs of the 16 wives.
