Meet Danger. He’s 93-year-old Ancentus Akuku, a Kenyan polygamist with 100 wives and 160 children. He died this week after an illness — and that illness was wanting 100 wives and 160 children in the first place, because gah.
Nicknamed Danger due to his ability to convince women it was a good idea to marry someone with 99 wives and more than 150 children, he credits his long life to a diet favoring vegetables.
Danger’s many accomplishments where accomplishments equal sperm, include the fabrication of two elementary schools, one church, and nearly 200 kids’ names. In the end, Danger collapsed at home from high blood pressure. And is it any wonder?

–>I don’t even know where to begin. It reminds me of the sperm doctor who used his own “specimen” several years ago and all the kids ended up looking like him and had lazy eye.

i think it’s the socks… and the casual way he wears his hat and scarf.
MetroDad saysOctober 7, 2010 at 11:04 am
Danger might be my new style guru.
The Domestic Goddess saysOctober 7, 2010 at 11:09 am
Seriously, if I met a man that had 50 wives I’d walk away. Or one. If he had one wife, I’d think better of it.
Mashawnda Dowell saysOctober 7, 2010 at 11:23 am
Ha, he would of been so bored in America. No city would of been able to “fit” his needs.
BossysMom saysOctober 7, 2010 at 12:45 pm
definately bored in America. We need to loosen up a little!
Summer saysOctober 7, 2010 at 1:09 pm
100 baby mamas?! That’s some big, BIG love. With knee socks. Eeeewwwww.
Robin saysOctober 7, 2010 at 1:55 pm
I can only imagine the baby mama drama.
Bossy’s HMMMM makes me nervous.
GrandeMocha saysOctober 7, 2010 at 2:47 pm
Are we sure the 30 divorced wives didn’t have a hand in it? Maybe some Mexican pirates? How did he feed all these people?
Gail K. saysOctober 7, 2010 at 3:29 pm
Bossy, were you on the lookout for a new husband? This was the best you come up with??
Just imagine him on Divorce Court….
kathleen saysOctober 7, 2010 at 3:29 pm
That’s HOT! I never could resist a man in knee socks.
Melissa saysOctober 7, 2010 at 3:35 pm
Have you ever wondered why men want more than one wife, and yet there’s not really any news of women with more than one husband??? Seriously!! thanks for sharing – I got a great laugh today.
Catherine McP saysOctober 7, 2010 at 3:42 pm
He sure puts the guy from “Sister wives” to shame.
Little Miss Sunshine State saysOctober 7, 2010 at 3:54 pm
Obviously this is a system with no alimony or child support.
Deb saysOctober 7, 2010 at 4:59 pm
I need more information, Bossy. Did the wives work whilst he laid back and spent the earnings of 100 women? Or did he support all these people somehow?
Perhaps Barbie Theatah could illustrate this best…
dgm saysOctober 7, 2010 at 5:29 pm
Geez, one time I was going to St. Ives and I met a man with SEVEN wives–but Danger totally puts him to shame!
Angela saysOctober 7, 2010 at 8:15 pm
If he had 100 wives, does that mean there were 99 dudes in his neck of the woods with 0 wives? Just wondering how these things work.
Gretchen saysOctober 7, 2010 at 9:02 pm
I was in Kenya a few years years ago and met a 22 year old young man who had 2 wives and 3 kids. And he was complaining about not being able to find a job in the city. In his small village the woman makes the dung hut for herself and her kids. The husband visits if he wants. Each home is only as tall as the woman because she can’t reach any higher and there is no one to help her build it. It works for them.
Cupcake Murphy saysOctober 7, 2010 at 10:46 pm
Excuse me but if Danger is so dangerous why is he unable to wear pants? Case closed.
Cacklin Rose saysOctober 7, 2010 at 10:59 pm
Not even remotely related, but something you’ll love nonetheless : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGKoBxqZhWI&feature=player_embedded#!
Queenoqueens saysOctober 8, 2010 at 12:31 am
Does Danger have a brother?
AnnP saysOctober 8, 2010 at 2:08 am
Too much!!! Hilarious!
joeinvegas saysOctober 8, 2010 at 11:00 am
I doubt if you have enough Barbies at your place to do even a close Barbie Theatah segment.
madtexter saysOctober 8, 2010 at 11:17 am
Ewww…nasty. Sharing all that sperm with all those wives. Are those ladies desperate or something. He must have some extra special equipment (if you know what I mean), because he ain’t much to look at.
Dobes saysOctober 8, 2010 at 4:47 pm
Oh please, it’s totally my dream to find a man who would have to take care of me and give me kids but who only has time to visit 3 or 4 days a year. Throw in other women close by to share the cooking and watch the kids when I want a nap and I’m sold, even if he does wear knee socks!
steph saysOctober 8, 2010 at 6:12 pm
I’m with Dobes. Wouldn’t have to bother with him much, you know.
runnergirl saysOctober 8, 2010 at 6:25 pm
Wow, hope they don’t celebrate Christmas in Polygamy. That’s one big a#% polyanna. How do you keep track of everybody?
Beth saysOctober 10, 2010 at 12:04 am
I’ve wanted me some sister wives for years.
Momo Fali saysOctober 10, 2010 at 9:56 pm
I think he was so popular because of the size of his cane. Not that size matters.
