Father of nearly 300 children kicks the bucket in Kenya

41912.jpegFamed internationally for his practice of extreme polygamy, 94 year old Acentus Akuku, aka "Danger", kicked the bucket on October 3 in Kenya after having been married 130 times and fathering nearly 300 children.

In a country where life expectancy does not exceed 54 years, Acentus Akuku's life story is one that is almost surreal. Famous for getting married 130 times and fathering nearly 300 children, the absolute ladies man died Sunday at age 94, according to Afrik-news.

Akuku married his first wife in 1939 and his last wife in 1992. He also divorced as many as 30 wives, state media said.

Polygamy was a norm in the Kenya nation during Akuku's time.

While the practice was popular among his generation, it has slowly died out over the years. Women have acquired more equality in the country, and most vow they would never marry a polygamist, CNN International informs.
