A Ugandan man believed to have fathered the highest number of children in the country has died, The New Vision has learned. He was 103. A World War veteran, Lieutenant Jack Kigongo of Kateera village, Kiboga district had 158 children by the time of his death in November 2011. He fathered the children from 20 wives but by the time of his death he had 11 wives, according his son Patrick Bulira Kigongo. He left behind about 500 grandchildren. New Vision found three of Kigongos widows and a number of his children and grand-children still staying at his dilapidated mansion. Bulira said the family is going through a hard time, following the death of their father. He said a number of Kigongos children are vending fruits in Kateera trading centre. According to Bulira, the once prosperous family was impoverished by the five-year bush-war that brought the NRM/NRA to power. He says their father had a coffee factory, two lorries, a big herd of cattle and all these were either looted or destroyed during the war.
