Uganda: Drama As Three Men Fight Over Kids

Drama unfolded during a local court hearing at Nakatooke village, Bulo Sub county, Butambala district where three men are fighting over two children.

The mother of the boys, Aidah Nalwoga is charged with juggling three men to get financial support from all of them.

The Nakatooke Central LCI boss, Abdul Lubega, who chaired the court tasked Nalwoga to explain her actions and reveal who the real father of the boys is.

The three men are Didan Kaziro, Charles Lwanga and Hood Mubiru. Mubiru however delegated representatives in court.

The boys at the centre of the drama are 4-year old Sserumaga and 2-year old Eric.

Nalwoga claims Lwanga is the father of the boys though he says he only knows one of them. He says he was only notified four days after Nalwoga delivered the second boy and that he was never aware that she was pregnant. Nalwoga however insisted that that she informed Lwanga about the pregnancy.

Lwanga told court that he has been giving Nalwoga financial support until another man, Kaziro, informed him that he was looking after children that were not his.

Kaziro also claims he is the father of the older boy and that he fended for Nalwoga from the time she was pregnant with the child until she gave birth. He said because she was greedy and ashamed she claimed Lwanga was also the father.

Kaziro told the court that he wants Nalwoga to surrender his son so he can take him to a good school.

Residents however claim the younger boy is Mubiru's because the resemblance is remarkable. They also claim Lwanga did not father any of the children and even the older one belongs to Kaziro.

To put the matter to rest, the court and Bulo Police boss, Sayid Waibuga, decided that DNA tests would be carried out to know who the rightful father of the children is.
