29-year-old businessman Laban Sabiti was left stranded with five children, including a breastfeeding 13-month old toddler.
The case, whose details went viral on social media, took root after a 29-year-old Laban Sabiti, a retail businessman in Bishayu Village, Kitojo Parish, Ruhija Sub-county in Rubanda District, was left stranded with five children.
These also include a 13-month toddler, who was left to the care of its father after he allegedly failed to settle bride price arrears totalling Shs6m.
Mr Sabiti was left stranded after his father-in-law, Mr Geoffrey Kakona — a resident of Kirima Village, Bushuura parish in Kanungu District — reportedly reclaimed his daughter.
“It is true I delayed paying bride price but I was planning to pay it in December this year. I was surprised when my father in-law came and took my wife, Ms Prize Twikirize even after explaining to him that I was willing to fulfil my traditional obligation,” Mr Sabiti, who has filed a case of child neglect with the police, says.
Janet... Some Men should learn to respect tradition,,why should you marry and produce all these kids with someone’s daughter on credit,,,??
Santos… My prayer is for that to happen to me. Let the father of the woman try to take my responsibility for while be4 I pay the bride px
