James Kisamba packed his bags and left home thirteen years ago without speaking to his destitute family, who looked up to him as their sole provider.

According to a report by the Daily Monitor, when Kisamba left, his wife, Efulansi Nalubega, had to take on the burden of providing for the family despite having a disability.

"He would bark at me and question why I was making financial demands to him while I was not working," the woman narrated.

After her husband left them, Efulansi had to figure out how to provide for the family, and she embarked on farming to ensure they stayed afloat.

"I also knitted sweaters on the side, and I sold them to make some money," she said.

She received a significant financial boost from the Ugandan government, which offered her R4.9k to plant some maize.

Upon learning that his wife has been making much money through farming and government donations, Kisamba recently returned, hoping to enjoy her sweat after 13 years.

The man admitted he left the family in 2011 because he could not provide for the family.

Despite welcoming him with open arms, the woman has since been warned to refrain from sharing her money with the prodigal husband.
