Photos of a Ugandan Billionaire Businessman’s Over 30 Children at His Funeral Leaves People in Shock

The internet has been buzzing with comments and mixed reactions after photos of a billionaire educationist’s burial emerged on social media showing the astonishing number of his children.


The billionaire and his children

A 71-year-old popular Ugandan billionaire educationist and founder of St Lawrence schools, Prof Lawrence Mukiibi, was laid to rest on Friday, June 1st in his ancestral home at Katenden, but one thing that left mourners in shock, was the number of his children, whom he had outside wedlock as he had no official wife.

According to multiple online reports, eyewitnesses in attendance at the funeral, counted over 30 children of the deceased, some of them as young as a few months, as the late billionaire reportedly fathered more than 80 kids from his students.

While speaking in an interview with NBS Television, in April 2016, Prof. Mukiibi was asked the number of his children, he said: “It is a taboo to ask an African man how many children he has, especially a man of my age. But I have children, I keep adopting.”

The New Vision reports that his family is planning to conduct DNA tests to confirm the paternity of the children, and several pregnant women have also come forward to claim that the late educationist was responsible for their pregnancies.

Keti Nandi, the officer in charge of child and family affairs in Kampala Metropolitan East, have advised the family of Mukiibi to continue providing assistance to the expectant mothers up to birth. Then after that, they can carry out DNA tests to ascertain the paternity of the children.

“My appeal is that whoever is pregnant should not be undermined because of that. Even if you (family) denied the pregnancy, the responsibility is upon you people to make sure that these women are catered for until they give birth,. It will be after birth that the DNA will take over,” Nandi said.

Baby Eli dies

Eli Thompson, the baby born without a nose, dies at 2 years old

Eli Thompson, who attracted worldwide media attention after he was born without a nose, died Saturday evening, according to his father, Jeremy Finch.

Eli had turned two years old on March 4.

He was pronounced dead at around 10:40 p.m. at Springhill Medical Center in Mobile, Finch said.

Eli was "very, very bright and happy, always smiling and giving everybody fist bumps," Finch said in a phone interview Sunday morning.

He used baby sign language, and Finch was starting to do speech therapy at home with a speaking valve, he said. "His favorite sign was 'cookie,'" he said. The first thing he did every morning was to ask for a cookie, and he recently received the "Cookie Monster Award" from his daycare.

"He touched a lot of people's lives," Finch said, with tears in his voice. "A lot of people cared about him."

Eli was born at South Baldwin Hospital in Foley, then immediately transported to USA Children's and Women's Hospital in Mobile. He received a tracheotomy at 5 days old.

Through a no longer extant Facebook page called Eli's Story, thousands of people followed the tale of the baby born with arhinia, a rare facial anomaly said to affect only one in 197 million births.

When he was 7 months old, Eli met another child, Tessa Evans of Ireland, then 2 1/2 years old, who also had arhinia.

"To get to introduce Tessa to Eli was like a dream come true and it meant the world to us to sit and talk with his family," Tessa's mother, Grainne Evans, wrote after the meeting. "Tessa was totally taken with Eli and hugged him and stroked his head. Watching Eli gaze up at her was too precious for words."
