The Problem With Polygamy?


Ayattu Nure used to be a wealthy Ethiopian. So he married a lot of women and reproduced like a rabbit. Guess what. He is no longer wealthy. His problems?

The cost for one. His biggest complaint at the moment is with the authorities of the local school which 40 of his children now attend. They want photographs for each of his children's files, which will further deplete his meagre resources.

Another: Ayattu Nure says he regrets having so many children - he cannot remember all their names.

And whose fault is it? "He blames Ethiopia's government for not doing more to help him look after all his children."

His current professional goal: giving advice on family planning and contraception.

No thanks.

Mr. Nure is obviously a liberal Democrat.

His current professional goal: giving advice on family planning and contraception: Priceless...

Anyone else reminded of Apu from the Simpson's?

Maybe he can sell those kids to a circus act :-)
