(NAIROBI, Kenya) -- The grandson of the late Kenyan polygamist Asentus “Danger” Akuku told Kenya’s Daily Nation newspaper that a Facebook page he created to locate his grandfather’s many children and grandchildren has garnered responses from all over the world.
Akuku died earlier this month, leaving behind more than 100 wives and dozens more children. He will be buried Dec. 4 to allow his family time to travel.
Nicknamed "Danger" for his physical appearance and ability to attract many partners, Ancentus Akuku became a polygamist in his early 20s. There was no known age for Akuku at the time of his death, though various reports specified he was in his 90s.
In an interview, one of the man’s wives described Akuku as a proud man who took care of his family. Her only complaint was that he “rarely visited,” but when he did, she says “he was just the best.”
