Father of nine who lives in one room shack with his family says he wants to double the number of kids
A Zimbabwean man, Ernest Chinuwo, who lives in a dilapidated one-room shack with his nine children, has shockingly disclosed that he wants to double the number of kids he has.
Chinuwo lives with his very young family in a rundown, dilapidated shack in the high-density suburb of Usanga in Chipinge.
National broadcaster ZBC reported that the man said he is staying in the shack, after someone asked him to be the caretaker for the stand. The owner of the stand resides in South Africa.
Admitting that his family is finding it hard to survive, Chinumo disclosed that his children have to wake up early so that they can ‘hustle’ for food in the town of Chipinge despite being quite young.
He said his children fetch firewoods which they sell alongside charcoal and fruits such as bananas.
In spite of the hardship, the man is aiming to have more children as he believes they will help him. His late wife bore nine children, which include four sets of twins. He appears to believe, like some sections of society, that children are a cheap source of labour.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that Misheck Nyandoro, a Johanne Marange Apostolic sect member with 151 children from 16 wives has revealed that he has no plan of stopping anytime soon.
According to the Herald, the polygamist from Mbire in Mashonaland Central of Zimbabwe, said that he is planning to take his 17th wife soon so that he can add to his 151 children.
