Musa Hasahya family

A man from Uganda‘s Butajela district is asking for help in supporting his 102 children following economic hardship and two of his 12 wives leaving him, the country’s New Vision newspaper reports.

Musa Hasahya, who married the first of his wives in 1971, has asked the government and charity organisation the Good Samaritans to assist him in sending his younger children to school, the newspaper says.

The businessman and grandfather to 567 children, owns 160 acres of land which has allowed him to produce food for his sizeable family but recent economic problems has made educating his children, difficult.

He admits having such a large family has made things difficult.

“I have advised all my wives of childbearing age to go for family planning. I also discourage those who wish to marry more than four wives not to do so because things are not good,” Mr Hasahya is quoted by the New Vision as saying
