Muwonge stays with both parents but peasant farmers. They are unable to raise funds for school fees and other requirements of the children. What comes out of the garden is little that it can only help them have what to eat leaving them with nothing to meet other family needs.
Muwonge is mentally health but has hernia.
At the moment he is the fourth born in the family of 6 children. He dreams to become a medical doctor one day which looks quite hard regarding his parents’ current financial status to support his education. He lacks most of the basic needs in his life as his parents’ income is meager.
