COUPLES WITH TRIPLETS STORM KASESE DISTRICT CFO OFFICE FOR HELP
Parents with triplets on Thursday stormed the office of the Kasese district chief finance Officer Ferigo Kambale asking for assistance in the upbringing of the seven months old children.
Neckson Baluku and his wife Mary Kabonesa hailing from Katiri village in Bulembia division said they were referred to the CFO’s office as they attempted to camp at the Kasese district headquarters at Rukoki to seek assistance.
Baluku said since his wife gave birth to the triplets in February, they can no longer work in their gardens effectively as they look after the new bones with their three elder siblings.
They named the babies as Dafine Nyangoma, Moreen Nyakato and Doreen Kitsa.
While receiving financial support of one hundred thousand shillings from Ferigo at Virina Gardens Hotel on Thursday evening, their mother Kabonesa said the triplets all females lack breast milk because her left breast cannot serve them after undergoing surgery on some time last year.
She also revealed the babies are having a slow growth because the family cannot afford nutritious foods, clothings and beddings.
Ferigo Kambale has offered to be assisting the family with one hundred thousand shillings for four years when the babies can be assured of good health.
He said that he has become part of the family and is ready to extend more support to the family materially in case of need.
