A Ugandan businessman, Hajji Mohammad Ngobi could not contain his emotions and let it all out in a form of tears after his five wives threw a surprise party to celebrate his 57th birthday.
His spouses felt grateful that his love for them which is not discriminatory has ensured a peaceful and happy marriage for almost three decades.
The five women, Aisha Namatende, Zulufah Nampina, Sumaya Ngobi, Hajjati Lamulal Ngobi, Aminah Namukose and Sharifah Ngobi, have been married to Ngobi for a period of 30 to 10 years. Ngobi is also the prime minister of the Nagwere clan.
The party was held at the home of the eldest wife, Namatende in Nabidongha zone, Iganga town last week.
Hajji Ngobi said he had not expected the party thrown in his honour and thanked his wives and family for appreciating his decades of work.
“I have been able to build a house for each of my wives and they all have a business. Before I add another one, I am always open to the new one to know that she is not alone, but that there other women as well.” he said.
Since the story hit the internet, netizens have reignited the age long debate about whether polygamy should be practiced widely or abandoned on the premise of religion (Christianity).
