Pakistani truck driver facing trouble to feed 54 children

A 70-year-old truck driver in Pakistan claims to have fathered 54 children with six wives because when he was younger he ‘had to have sex daily’.

Abdul Majeed Mengal, 70, from Nushki, in Quetta, western Pakistan, has fathered an extraordinary 54 children in his life time.Even though tragically 12 of his children have died, he still has 22 sons and 20 daughters.

He said: ‘In the early days, my strength was good and I had to have sex daily. But some of my kids died. I worked hard and provided a good education to my older sons. But now I’m an old man these things are out of my hands.’ Abdul married his first wife when he was 18-years-old but he has married five other women since. Along side the death of 12 of his children, he has lost two of his wives.

‘They (babies) were not getting enough milk and I was out of money so they died,’ he admitted. ‘One of my wives died alongside our baby. She was ill and because we didn’t have any money she died. I was helpless and unemployed.’
