DURING his time in secondary school, Henry Mutebe experienced the love of a man who became his father figure The 73-year-old man identified as Wilson Dhabangi would visit a young Mutebe in school every Sunday without fail In September this year, Mutebe shared his story with the world and many were moved; a campaign to build the elderly man a house

A few months ago, a Ugandan man, Henry Mutembe moved the internet after narrating how a man who is totally unrelated to him became his father figure. Mutebe lost his biological father as a young child and when the time came for him to join secondary school, he was enrolled in a school where parents were allowed to visit their children on Sunday. Wilson Dhabangi took care of Henry Mutebe decades ago and he will now get a new home for his kindness.

With Mutebe’s mother being focused on working hard to raise the children by herself, she could barely get time to visit her son and this is where Wilson Dhabangi came into the picture.

Every Sunday, Dhabangi rode his bicycle to Mutebe’s school; not even once did he fail and he would bring groundnuts and a heart full of love. Mutebe never forgot the old man’s kindness This gesture became imprinted in the young man’s heart and he vowed that one day, he would repay Dhabangi for his kindness.

In September this year, Mutebe surprised the now 73-year-old man with his first-ever flight to Nairobi from Uganda. He also surprised another woman Rebecca Mukyala, 51, who also supported his mother when his father died.

When he shared the story on his socials in September, many were pulled to their heartstrings and immediately, a campaign to build the two good-hearted people houses began. Multi-million home

A report by Daily Monitor showed that so far, UGsh 350 million (N40.5 million) had been raised and many other building materials were donated to build Dhabangi and Mukyala each a home.

Some of the sponsors of these projects of love include Uganda Airlines which has been instrumental in rallying well-wishers behind the cause.

We were touched by Mutebe’s story; so after Dhabangi returned from Nairobi, photos of where he stayed were shared and we decided to not only stop at flying him, but giving him a new life,” an official from the airline said.

During the Nairobi trip, Uganda Airlines also upgraded the Dhabangi, and the two other travellers to business class after they heard the touching story. The project to build the houses has attracted so many partners and even better, a mushroom-growing skilling project from Agromush will also be constructed and will come in handy for thousands of residents. Asked why he was so kind to Mutebe 27 years ago, the elderly man said his parents had been so good to him and wanted the young Mutebe to feel loved.
