A man who could be referred to as the 'most fruitful man in Africa', Mustafa Magambo Mutone, has cried out to the government for financial support.
The Ugandan, who is 65 years old is a proud father of 176 children, 90 grandchildren. He has 13 wives and 10 girlfriends.
New Vision reports that Mustafa, who is expecting more children, is seeking government's help in order to train some of his 176 children.
“I have tried to feed my 13 wives and over 170 children and it is not easy. I request the government to at least sponsor 30 of my children in secondary schools and tertiary institutions,” Mustafa, a businessman and a resident of Kyaterekera trading centre in Kagadi district, said.
In a bid to cut down expenses and even make more money while at it, Mustafa who has over 40 children in primary school, is planning to establish his own nursery and primary school.
He also said he has about 10 children in the universities (Makerere, Mbarara and Kyambogo), most of them on private sponsorship.

Mustafa has five pairs of twins among his children. His number of children will hit 180 towards the end of the year when six of his wives who are pregnant, deliver.
In a recent interview, Mustafa explained that he is still willing and intending to marry more wives who will bear him more children. This he does instead of smoking and drinking.
"Two of my wives who gave birth to twins are in Kampala and Isingiro, working as midwives, while another two — Haniffer Kabasomi and Jane Tuhaise — work as nurses. My youngest wife is 25, and the eldest is 50, but I had about 10 girlfriends before I married officially and they all delivered the same year,” Mustafa said.

According to him, his first born child is 49 years old, while the youngest are four-year-old twins. He further noted that he has over 90 grandchildren and he has a special book where he records every child born whether within the country or outside, because he has some wives in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, and Burundi.
He said one of the challenges he faces is the long distance as some of his women live in different parts of the country.
‘’I receive about 10 calls every day from different wives who want attention but I cannot be everywhere. I have seven wives in Kagadi alone. I do not have any challenge of supporting them because some of them support themselves since they work,” Mustafa said.
