A man thought to have been the head of the world’s largest family — with 39 wives and 94 children, according to Reuters — has died in northeast India, according to officials.

Ziona Chana, 76, the head of a local Christian sect that allows polygamy, died on Sunday, the chief minister of the state of Mizoram in the northeast of the country announced via Twitter.

Chana lived with his family in a vast, four-story pink structure with around 100 rooms in Baktawng, a remote village that became a tourist attraction, according to Zoramthanga, the chief minister who goes by one name said on Monday.

According to Reuters, the sect, named Chana, was founded by Chana's grandfather in 1942 and counts hundreds of families as members.

Chana married his first wife when he was 17 and claimed he once married 10 wives in a single year.

While illegal, polygamy is practiced in some communities in India.

The wives shared a dormitory near his private bedroom, and locals had told Reuters that he liked to have seven or eight of them by his side at all times.

Despite his family's huge size, Chana told Reuters in a 2011 interview that he wanted to grow it even bigger.

"I am ready to expand my family and willing to go to any extent to marry," he said. "I have so many people to care for and look after, and I consider myself a lucky man."
The BBC reported that with a total of 167 members, the clan was named the world's largest family by "Ripley's Believe It or Not," although this depends on whether you count the grandchildren, of whom Chana has 33. Winston Blackmore, the head of a polygamous Mormon sect in Canada, by contrast, has around 150 children from 27 wives — 178 people in total.

Read that Mzungu polygamist, Winston Blackmore story.
For real though, why is Polygamy outlawed in the west?
Kuna a concrete reason na their deep state ama it's just a result of having gynocentric laws

Akuku Danger from Ndiwa, Homa Bay, and some of his offsprings... Oct 4, 2010
Kenya's most prominent polygamist died Oct 4, 2010, having married more than 100 women in his lifetime and fathered nearly 200 children.
Nicknamed "Danger" because women were so attracted by his handsome looks, Ancentus Akuku was in his late 90's when he passed away of natural causes. He married his first wife in 1939 and became a polygamist some 70 years ago at the age of 22. He's outlived 12 of his wives, marrying the last one in 1992.
