Head of World’s Largest Family With 39 Wives & 94 Kids, Passes Away at 76 – JK Student Update

INDIA: Ziona Chana of Mizoram, who headed the world’s largest family with 39 wives and 94 children, passed away on Sunday. He was 76 and he breathed his last at the Trinity Hospital in state capital Aizawl soon after being admitted there. He had some health issues, including high blood pressure and diabetes.

Ziona was the leader of Chana Pawl or Chhuanthar, a sect formed by his grandfather Khuangtuaha after he was expelled from Hmawngkawn village in 1942. Since then, his family lives in Baktawng village, around 55 km from Aizawl. Khuangtuaha was succeeded by his son Chana, who was the father of Ziona.

Zion-a was the leader of Chana Pawl or Chhuanthar, a sect formed by his grandfather Khuangtuaha after he was expelled from Hmawngkawn village in 1942.

Since then, his family lives in Baktawng village, around 55 km from Aizawl. Khuangtuaha was succeeded by his son Chana, who was the father of Zion-a. Around 400 families are members of the sect that allows polygamy for its male members.

Zion-a’s four-storey mansion at Baktawng is a major tourist attraction. The family has been featured twice by ‘Ripley’s Believe it or not’ in 2011 and 2013.

Chief Minister Zoramthanga, state Congress chief Lal Thanhawla and Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) leader Lalduhoma have condoled Zion-a’s death.

“With heavy heart, Mizoram bid farewell to Mr Zion-a (76), believed to head the world’s largest family… Rest in Peace Sir,” the chief minister tweeted.
