Mizoram man with 38 wives, 89 kids dies at the age 76

Jun 14, 2021 09:02 IST | By Editorji News Desk

38 wives, 89 children, 33 grandchildren. Ziona Chana from Mizoram, who headed the world's largest family, has died at the age of 76.

Moziram chief minister on Sunday bid farewell and said that Chana's house in Baktawng Tlangnuam house had become a major tourist attraction. He also tweeted a group picture of the huge family.

Ziona was the head of Chana pawl, a minor Christian sect formed in 1942 in Mizoram by his father. The sect follows the practice of polygamy. Born in 1945, Ziona married his first wife, who was three years older to him, at the age of 17. He married his last wife in 2004

Chana reportedly lived with his family in a large 100-room, four-storey building.
