UGANDAN MAN SEEKS GOVT AID TO HELP FEED 13 WIVES, 176 CHILDREN

KAMPALA, A 65-year-old man, Mustafa Magambo Mutone, is seeking help from the Ugandan Government to support some of his 176 children.

I have tried to feed my 13 wives and over 170 children and it is not easy. I request the government to at least sponsor 30 of my children in secondary schools and tertiary institutions, said Mutone, a businessman and a resident in Kyaterekera in Kagadi district.

He added that he has more than 40 children in primary school and has plans to establish his own nursery and primary school in Kyaterekera sub-county. He has about 10 children in the universities (Makerere, Mbarara and Kyambogo), most of them on private sponsorship. Mutone has five pairs of twins among his children. His children will hit the 180 mark by the end of the year because six of his wives are pregnant.

Mutone, a member of the Mubwisi tribe, is the chairman of Kyaterekera A village. He says he was born on Jan 1, 1952 in Kiryabwenju, in western Uganda's Kagadi district. His first marriage was in 1968 at 16 years of age.

He explained that he is still strong enough to marry more wives and bear more children, since he does not drink alcohol, smoke or consume sugar. Mutone, who deals in produce such as beans, maize and coffee, also owns a wholesale shop at Kyaterekera trading centre.
