Simon Kamakia from Arusha, Tanzania, said he took the decision of selling off those properties because his own children failed to attend his wedding.

According to reports, the newly wedded wife, aged 40 compelled the old man to sell all his land and houses, perhaps in a way to punish his children.

The old man, Simon said;

They did not come to the wedding, therefore, embarrassing me. I did not like it to see there was no one close to me in church,”

He further noted that he sold all the land where his children and relatives lived since they did not support his decision to remarry.

The children, however, said they did not have the energy to attend the wedding at that time as they were still mourning their mother.

Simon then vowed to sell everything that belongs to him and leave for good.

He is alleged to have taken over the rental houses that he had previously given to his children. He transferred the onus of looking after the houses to a son he reportedly sired outside wedlock.
