A great history of our polygamists, warrior queens, chiefs and Big Men

What you need to know:

  • In his life, Akuku married over 100 wives, divorced 85 on grounds of infidelity, and sired 160 children. He outlived 12 of his wives, marrying the last one in 1992.
  • Also, that there were so many children in his family that Akuku established two primary schools solely to educate his brood, as well as a church for his growing family to attend. I hadn’t heard those details before.
  • There are no longer men like Akuku Danger in Kenya, or elsewhere in Africa or the world, for that matter.

Wednesday was the second anniversary of the death of Ancentus Ogwella Akuku, who was better known as Akuku Danger.
