Zimbabwe lost yet another politician to Covid-19 after former Zanu-PF official Luke Phibion Masamvu died of Covid-19 related complications in Harare in January, according to the country’s media.
At the time of his death Luke Phibion Masamvu was 62 years old.
While the MP had been trending for being a good man, according to those who admired him, it is however, his family life that has set tongues wagging.
The former Zimbabwean MP, Luke Phibion Masamvu left behind 79 children and 12 wives, after he died from COVID-19 in January 2021. He had 28 children in primary schools, 10 children in secondary schools and 10 children in universities.
According to an earlier interview in a documentary, Masamvu had 79 children children and 12 wives.
“He is a father, but not just a father, but a super dad. With 28 children at primary school, 10 at secondary school, 10 at various universities and others who have since graduated, including a lawyer and a surveyor, the family is quite big, without adding 18 grandchildren from seven adults who have since married,” says the narrator of the documentary.
Masamvu’s story is similar to Mariam Nabatanzi, a 41-year-old woman from Kabimbiri village in Uganda, who has been dubbed “the most fertile woman in the world” who was reported in 2017 to have 38 children, all from the same man.
