Instead of taking the generous offer, a family of 10 which receives benefits totaling more than $50,000 annually, had a straightforward request for taxpayers, after turning down a free 5-bedroom house!

Having a home in Britain allows Arnold Mballe Sube and his wife Jeanne, who were both born in Cameron, to pursue their family’s ultimate desire. They didn’t anticipate, however, that this ambition would include them fighting to meet the demands of their eight children and, potentially, additional ones in the near future.

The 33-year-old parents spent roughly $20,000 on rent in their first few weeks in the nation, paying for a house they couldn’t possibly afford. But in order to survive on their own they were unable to come up with a reasonable budget and reduce.

But soon after, the Subes swiftly applied for every assistance program for which they were eligible after they learned about the advantages available to immigrants. The family then was getting more than $57,000 in annual benefits in addition to $1,656 per month in rent. However, they came to the conclusion that this was insufficient to support a family of ten.

And that the family only had one thing to say, the home would be too “cramped,” the family was ultimately offered a five-bedroom house that they could move into immediately and without paying a dime, as the Luton Borough Council provided the Sube family with a number of free apartments when they applied for a government-funded home.

And instead, the family of 10 even demanded that the taxpayers would provide them with a house that was at least 6 double-sized bedrooms than the one that was offered so that they could accommodate their children, after rejecting the offer with a lavish 5-bedroom house entirely for free!

The council made three more offers of larger homes in an effort to accommodate their desire. The family was finally offered the option of choosing a house or paying for their own. The Subes reluctantly seized the opportunity, choosing a $551,300 home in a desirable neighborhood.

However, Arnold Mballe Sube said:

“Where I’m from they would give houses to English people easily and treat them very fairly, so I expect fair treatment from any country I move to. It is my right to live a normal life like any other normal family,” explaining that such an offer is the least that the country could do for him.

According to reports, their new house has a detached building with four double bedrooms, a utility room, a garage, a garden, and a driveway, which would rent for the typical person for about $19,000 per year. Locals refer to the house as a “lovely estate,” and it is located in one of the city’s most prestigious suburbs.

The Subes feel they have just enough space for their eight children, but they haven’t ruled out having more.

However, citizens, who find it “unfair” that the family gets to move in simply because they don’t make enough money, the move has caused outrage.

One neighbor said, “If you have eight kids you should not expect to be bailed out. The father has played the system and won. They are extremely fortunate. This is a lovely estate. Parents are desperate to move here.”

Politicians have also taken notice of the case, particularly those who want to reform welfare and relieve the financial strain on taxpayers. David Morris, a Luton Conservative MP, condemned the action and accused the council of enabling systemic abuse.

He said, “Families up and down Britain could never dream of affording a big house like this. Yet they are having their noses rubbed in that fact by being made to fork out for someone else to live like a king.”

Additionally, they were given four months of free lodging at the Hampton by Hilton in Luton while they looked for a house. This cost the taxpayers just under $50,000 in rent and room service. The Subes have also happily accepted numerous more taxpayer-funded advantages in addition to their $500,000 home, with Arnold who has received $35,022 to pursue a 3-year psychiatric degree.

The Sube family considered reports in certain outlets to be incorrect and offensive; therefore they were obliged to retract them. Arnold emphasized that despite formerly working two jobs, he was still unable to support his eight children. He argued that by requesting a larger home from the municipality, he had only exercised his legal rights.

The Mirror publication pays them a “confidential settlement sum with their reasonable legal costs,” as forced to financially settle with the Subes.

We can only presume that the family of ten is currently living comfortably on government assistance while families with more demanding jobs struggle to support less opulent lifestyles. But according to the Sube family, they are owed every cent that they have collected from the taxpayers. They also haven’t ruled out the possibility of having more kids later on.
