A Ugandan man, simply identified as Ssalongo, has abandoned his wife and children after they welcomed a set of twins for the fifth time in a row.
His wife, Nalongo Gloria, speaking in an interview with NTV Mwasuze Mutya said her husband dumped her because he felt the series of twin births are not ‘normal’.
According to her, when they discovered she was expecting twins, he started complaining and told her to return to her parent’s house.
“When I got pregnant with twins, the man said this is too much for him and told me to go home.
“Where he was sending me, I didn’t have their numbers anymore because I came to Kampala to work as a house girl.”
She said she had nowhere to go to and remained in their matrimonial home which caused him to move out of the house, abandoning her and their children.
She further revealed that some of her older children have left home to an unknown destination and she doesn’t know their whereabouts.
To make matters worse, her landlord has given her an eviction notice because he said he does not want “her or her luggage”.
Speaking about her current state of mind following the series of unfortunate events, Gloria said,
“I don’t regret giving birth to all my children. I know their father doesn’t like them, and I can’t drop them at his place. Despite the challenges, I will never abandon my kids. I know God will provide.
“I handed my things to the Lord. I have suffered but God knows best.”
