At the age of 83, a man had his first child.

Mzee Yosia Mwesigye, 83, has given birth to his first kid following the death of his 79-year-old wife, who left no children.

In his previous marriage, Mzee Mwesigye tried for 57 years without success to conceive a child. Despite the fact that society places a high value on having children, Mzee Mwesigye has no remorse about his late wife’s inability to bear him a child.

Mzee Mwesigye was born on January 26, 1939, in Nyamiyaga Cell, Kazindiro Parish, Bugangari Sub-county, Rukungiri District, the third of ten children.
On April 25, 1962, at the age of 23, he married Jane Tukamuhabwa (since deceased), the passion of his life.
However, the couple was unable to have children.

“We were told we were fertile when we went to hospitals.”

Following doctors’ assurances, he remained faithful to his wife.
While there is no maximum age at which a man can have children, for women, menopause begins between the ages of 45 and 55. Tukamuhabwa was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2005 and passed away in 2018.

“We did everything together,” he continues, “but it was so tragic that she died before giving birth.”

Mzee Mwesigye found love again at the age of 79.

“After my wife died, I lived with workers and several adopted children, but they could sleep in the boys’ quarters while I slept alone in the main home.” “Life turned against me at that point, and I considered marrying a second wife,” he adds.

Mzee Mwesigye’s sister brought him a woman for a visit a few days later, and she later became his new wife.

“I was so excited that I cried and requested one of my workers to slaughter a goat,” he adds, explaining how he met his second wife, Sharon Arinaitwe.
He found out that Ms Arinaitwe, now 29, was pregnant after two years of marriage.
Health personnel at North-Kigezi Health IV Rugarama delivered her a healthy baby boy on March 23.

“I am overjoyed that God has given me a kid at my advanced age.” I had never considered obtaining one, but I continued to pray, and God ultimately answered my prayers, and here I am.

“It’s very hard to die without a child.” In our African tradition, people are only remembered if they leave a child on this planet. He continues, “I used to get up early in the morning, sit in my sitting room, and wonder how I would be remembered after I died because I didn’t have a child.”

Ms Arinaitwe said that her sister-in-law persuaded her to marry Mr Mwesigye.
“We arrived at his house in the pouring rain. I saw an elderly gentleman and assumed his son would be the one to marry me. Later that evening, the man expressed his desire to marry me. “That’s when I realized my hubby was a senior citizen,” she recalls.

“He is a decent man who loves his family,” she continues. I swear I’ll watch after him until he passes away.”

“He wanted to marry again, and I approved his offer,” Ms Feredansi Tumushabe, Mzee Mwesigye’s sister, adds. I began looking for a wife. I met Arinaitwe three months later and persuaded her to marry my brother.”

What experts have to say
According to Dr. Benon Bainomugisha of Nyakibale Hospital, such examples of couples who are medically normal unable to produce are widespread. “There’s a world of difference between being normal and having a child.”

A scenario like this is genetically passed along from generation to generation. People should always seek medical help from trained professionals, but because it is inherited, problems can remain,” he explains.
