Jobless Migrant Couple Turn Down Five Bedroom House Because It Didn’t Have a Dining Room

The saying 'a beggar has no choice' is probably no longer applicable in our present world.

Arnold Mballe Sube and his wife Jeanne, 33, both unemployed with eight children have refused a
new five-bedroom home offered them by the Luton Borough Council because it didn’t have a dining room.

Mr Sube moved his family to Britain from France in 2012 so he could study mental health nursing at the University of Bedfordshire.

According to a report by the Dailymail, the family currently live in a three bedroom, end-of-terrace home in Luton, Bedfordshire, which they claim is not in a good condition with their eight young children but turned down the council’s offer of a five bedroom house because it was not large enough and did not have a dining room.  They want a property with at least six double bedrooms for them to live comfortably.

Mr Sube, said, “Me and my family have been neglected, we are living in a three bedroom house and there’s not enough room for us to live – there’s ten of us”.

“It’s so cramped and the conditions are terrible, my children are starting school and we can’t stay here any longer – we need a bigger house”.

“The council is trying to make things hard for us, my wife is a full time mother and I am a student”.

“They’re just making excuses, we need a five or six bedroom house with double rooms to comfortably fit our family in.’

“There wasn’t space for the things of ten people, it didn’t even have a dining room”, he added.

Luton Borough Council housed the family in a hotel for four months before moving to their current home.

A spokesman from Luton Borough Council said: ‘Housing stock in Luton, is under constant pressure and on occasions we may have to locate families temporarily outside of Luton.
