A 35-year-old man has abandoned his wife for continuously conceiving twins.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the man identified as Ssalongo Moses Isabirye disappeared leaving behind his wife and seven children including three sets of twins.
According to the New Vision, Isabirye made the decision after a doctor revealed his wife Lakeri Namulondo, 25, could give birth to triplets on her next conception.
The news was confirmed by the local council chairman Koowa Kabatiisa who explained the 35-year-old got married to Namulondo after her parents' death.
The 25-year-old revealed she dropped out of school aged 15, got married and had seven children within a period of 10 years.
After her husband left, she returned back to her parents' home where she does manual work to survive.
She, however, has not considered remarrying again as she fears her new partner may also leave her.
"I fear that the new man may also abandon me," she said.
Namulondo who depends on handouts from friends and Good Samaritans said she could not afford to report her ex-husband to the police due to financial challenges.
Kabatiisa said the woman faced several challenges including lack of food, medication, and psychosocial support.
In another instance reported by Briefly.co.za, a man also abandoned his wife after she gave birth to conjoined twins.
Anayochukwu Njoku, a taxi driver, sneaked off after his wife Chidinma delivered the babies on March 11.
Chidinma, unfortunately, died three hours after giving birth to the twins named Goodluck and Rejoice Njoku.
