Kamartum has 3 wives who stay together in his grass thatched house. He also herds more than 100 goats and sheep in the same dusty homestead.
During the World Contraceptive Day that took place on Sunday 27th September 2020, the Baringo man told media that he will continue fathering more children to increase his chances of becoming a rich man in future.

“If you have more children you become richer. If for instance, you have 10 girls then you will get at least 10 to 15 cows per girl. There are also four camels per girl, totaling to 40, that is wealth,” he said.
He however said his customs and tradition do not permit men to count children. They are someone’s riches which must be continually increased and enlarged occasionally.
The seed-sower shockingly said his wives conceive again immediately after they heal from deliveries.
The father of 19 said God has provided for them ever since and he has never lacked or worried about food, education and health for his kids since God is in control.

“I want to sire as many children as I can. For those who would want to go to school, we will pray for God’s grace,” he said.
The amazing young man has trained most of his children how to look after the goats and sheep. His 3 wives said they were not aware of any family planning measures that would help control the number of kids they give birth to.
“We do not know about family planning. We have never heard about it,” said Kamartum’s first wife.
