Nulu Ssemakula, a Ugandan man with more than 100 children and over 19 wives has expanded his already huge family with an addition of not one, but four wives.

The 94-year-old hails from Ruyonza, one of the most polygamous villages in Uganda. In an interview with Daily Monitor, Ssemakula explained that his life desire is to have more wives and children as his big family translated to wealth.

“I, unfortunately, lost four of my wives while others who needed more than I could afford, I let them go. But they left me with children; I will still marry more if I still have more years and even have more children. In children and wives, is where I find my pleasure. That is my true wealth,” he said.

Nulu Ssemakula, a 94-year-old Ugandan man and father of 100 children, has added four new wives to his collection of 19 wives and says he is not yet ready to stop procreating.

Speaking to Daily Monitor, the man said it has not been easy maintaining all the wives as some left him when he couldn’t meet their demands.

“I will marry more if I still have more years and even have more children. They give pleasure and fulfilment. My true wealth is in my children and wives,” Ssemakula said. .Nulu’s youngest child is 10-months old and his youngest wife is a 24-year-old pregnant lass.

At the moment, Ssemakula lives with 66 of his children, with the youngest being 10-months-old. His youngest wife is 24-years-old and is expectant.

Started school for children

Ssemakula started a school named Kiyombero Primary School to accommodate all his school-going children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Apart from building a school, Ssemakula has a coffee huller and a dairy milk cooling machine to bring in income for the upkeep of his family.
