Kampala – A man living with a rare and unknown medical condition which has left this face severely deformed, also known as ‘Uganda’s Ugliest Man’ is celebrating the birth of his eighth child, reports KFM Uganda.
Godfrey ‘Sebabi’ Baguma (47) and his wife, Kate Namanda (30) celebrated the birth of their eighth child after getting married in 2013.
In 2002 a cash strapped Godfrey won a competition called ‘less-than-favourable’ in order to provide for his family.
He had initially been married before he met Kate but he separated from his first wife when she was caught cheating. The two share two children together.
‘She liked me because of my money, but people kept telling her that she could do better, so she started eloping with another man,’ said Sebabi to KFM Uganda.
Before his marriage to Kate, the couple stayed together but the rest of the village did not know about their union until Kate fell pregnant after four years.
‘I stayed with her four years before her people knew where she was. I didn’t want them to see me until we had a child because they would definitely advise her to leave me,’ he said.
However, ‘She left me when she was six months pregnant but I think she later accepted her fate because she came back two months later’.
He recalls telling his wife that he did not ask to be this way therefore if she was not able to handle his deformity then was welcome to leave him.
But in a story where true love prevailed Kate stayed in her marriage where the couple now have six children living in Sebabi’s hometown Kyazanga in Luweero District.
The couple got married in 2013 where guests had to pay UGX 4 000 to attend the reception.
Using his deformity and 'out-of-ordinary' features to his advantage Sebabi who used to be a cobbler makes appearances at ‘Uganda's Ugliest Man’ events and has joined comedy group, ‘Amarula Family’ where he also sings so people are not just staring at him when he is on stage.
