Nalongo Barbara Nvannungi, a woman in Nakawuka, Wakiso district in Ugandan, keeps a python at her home, but when wildlife authorities wanted to take it away, she claimed that “he” is her child, saying that she gave birth to twins in 2008, and reasoned that they cannot take her child away from her.
Residents are worried that the python could present a danger to the village and they went to Uganda Reptiles Village, Entebbe, asking them to take the python, but the mother is against taking away “her” child.
“I am the one who gave birth to him and can take care of him. A parent can’t fail to take care of her child,” she told Bukedde TV’s local Luganda news bulletin Agataliiko Nfuufu.
“I am asking that they let me be with my child,” she said while lovingly stroking the python!
