Daddy Dearest

A man in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, was upset to learn that three of his four children were not his own, and that his wife of 20 years had been unfaithful to him for most of that time. Worse, the neighbors had known for a long time and laughed at him behind his back. Furious, “Papa G.” sent the wife and three girls to the kids’ father’s house to live, but then decided that wasn’t revenge enough. So he seduced one of the girls, got her pregnant, and married her to become his ex-wife’s son-in-law. (RC/AFP) ...Kinshasa: in the U.S., we pronounce that “Kennedy.”
