Ziona married his first wife Zathiangi at 17 who is older to him by three years. Zathiangi is responsible for controlling the activities of the entire family with strict rules and discipline.
In order to accommodate his whole family, Ziona had to built a four-storied mansion that resembles a boarding house. It is the work of the wives to cook while the daughters take care of the cleaning and washing.
Older wives who are over 40 years live in the dormitories on first floor, while younger wives reside on the ground floor.
