Ugandan man fathered 158 children

April 25, 2012 at 2:23 PM

KATEERA, Uganda, April 25 (UPI) -- A 103-year-old Ugandan man died after fathering 158 children and amassing around 500 grandchildren.

Jack Kigongo of Kateera village fathered his children from 20 wives, with the oldest child being 60-years-old and the youngest being 15, The New Vision, Uganda, reported Wednesday.

Patrick Bulira Kigongo said his father, who is believed to have fathered the highest number of children in Uganda, was wealthy after serving in World War II but fell on hard times following the five-year bush-war that brought the NRM/NRA to power in Uganda.

Patrick Kigongo said 22 of his brothers died in the war.

"Three of my brothers are in the army -- a captain, a sergeant and a lieutenant," he said.

He said a number of Kigongo's widows and children live in his mansion, which still bears damage from the war.
