Julius Ssekitoleko Seeks Government Support To Find Work

The Ugandan Weightlifter Julius Ssekitoleko who escaped during the Tokyo Olympics has asked the government to help him find work. He said he needs help because he has a family he needs to sustain.

On Wednesday, the Police released the weightlifter who said he will continue with the sport despite his need for something sustainable.

‘’I want the government to help me find a job that I can do as I train, am ready to welcome anyone who can help me,’’ he said.

While everyone looked for him in Tokyo, the landlord evicted his wife from the house leaving her with no place to stay. The couple is now homeless, though Ssekitoleko is now living with his mother.

When asked about his disappearance, Ssekitoleko said his dismissal from the Olympics affected him mentally. This forced him to disappear.

His lawyer, Phillip Munaabi, said authorities charged Ssekitoleko with ‘conspiracy to defraud’ and investigations are still on.

‘’This case is much bigger so he will continue reporting here but they are still investigating,’’ Munaabi said.
