When some men receive news that their wives are expecting twins, the reaction has been to run away. But when Hussein Sserwadda did, he stood by his wife despite the heavy responsibility of having to look after the newborns. The triplets, now teenagers, are identical.
“When my wife told me about the triplets, I was super excited and could not wait to have them at home. They are loved by my whole family,” he said.
They are victorious at all they do. In last year’s UCE results, they scored aggregate 12.
The triplets: Mark Kizito, Daniel Mutebi and Derrick Muteesa have a lot of memories they share since childhood which are characterized with stubbornness and too much love for each other.
Mark Kizito, the youngest of the triplets, says nothing is as good as being an identical triplet. He says the community can hardly recognize them, except their father whom they stay with at Lugaala Kosovo.
According to Daniel Mutebi, he feels happy because people easily mistake them to be one as they resemble each other so much.
“My greatest fear is that when we start getting girls. My woman will be mistaken and go for my brother but I will get a mark which will make me stand out from my lovely brothers,” says Mutebi.
Derrick Muteesa says he loves his brother so much that if one of them is hurt, he cries and feels a lot of pain on his behalf. During school days, fellow students used to look at them as tourists attractions and could not differentiate them at all yet they were in different streams though same class.
Unlike triplets who share the same dreams, Kizito, Mutebi and Muteesa have different passions. Kizito wants to be an Engineer, Mutebi wants to be a doctor and Muteesa wants to be a pilot.
