Right from the day weightlifter Julius Sekitoleko, who was one of the athletes sent to represent for Uganda in the ongoing Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, escaped from the pre-Olympic Camp, a lot of ‘secrets’ about his private life were revealed
That is when we got to know that his pregnant wife was thrown out of their rental because of due rent, that is when got to know that he was chocking of many debts among other things, which was the reason why he had chosen to go hustle in Japan, to for look for better bread for his family.
Unfortunately, he wasn’t successful as he was 5 days later found and handed to the Ugandan Embassy in Japan which then organised for his deportation.
On arrival, he was arrested by Police officers from Criminal Investigations Department (CID) for interrogation, and also detained at a Jinja Road Police Station until Wednesday the 28th of July when he was released on Police Bond.
From the day he got his freedom again, some good Samaritans have given Sekitoleko some help, including vloggers and NTV who interviewed him to share more about his life full of challenges.
Famous Traditional healer Maama Fina on Monday gifted the father to bee soon with a brand new motorbike (Bajaaj Boxer) and Ug Shs 2 million cash.
Maama personally delivered the bike and the money to Sekitoleko in Kibuli, Kampala where he currently stays with his mother.
“You can get the little you have and give it to a person who doesn’t have and just keep your hopes in God you gave you that giving heart. I have not helped this young boy because I want him to praise me, no” Said Maama Fina
She continued to say that she doesn’t help in the name of getting likes or to impress the Government but because of God who saw her through the hard life she once lived
She also hit at the religious leaders who always criticize her over witchcraft for not coming out to help the boy especially in these times when he needs help more than before
The 20-year-old who went missing on 16th July and found on 19th, returned to his home country on 23rd of July and a few minutes after his arrival, he was whisked away by Police officers from Criminal Investigations Department (CID)
Before he vanished, he left a note in hos room saying that he was tired and sick of the hard life in Uganda
