A benefit Cameroonian Family
Arnold Sube, his wife and eight kids have cost taxpayers £238,000 in four years. His move to Milton Keynes, Bucks, caused outrage.
The family’s detached pad has a master bedroom with ensuite, and three further double bedrooms.
There is a dining room, a utility room off the kitchen and an integral garage, plus gardens and a driveway.
It should all be enough to keep any father happy, even one who brazenly claimed to The Sun his family was being “neglected” when their previous four-bedroom home felt too cramped.
Mr Sube and wife Jeanne are on benefits adding up to £44,000 a year and the family has cost taxpayers a total of £238,000 since arriving in Britain in 2012.
Yesterday several neighbours said they thought it “unfair” the family now did not have to pay a penny towards their £1,200 a month rent.
One woman 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.”
The Subes sparked outrage when they claimed their four-bed end-of-terraced benefit house was too small for them.
Another neighbour said: “This is a great place to live. We work hard and pay our bills and they get this for nothing.”
A third added: “Young people are living with their parents until their 30s because they have to save thousands for deposits for much smaller homes.”
The house is in Milton Keynes, Bucks — where the average cost of a family home is £264,393.
Tory councillor Michael Garrett said: “Mr Sube has had a result. He and his family have been moved on to one of the best estates.”
Tory MP David Morris 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.”
The Sun told in September how the Cameroon-born Subes, both 33, moved to Britain from France.
The NHS is funding a £27,000 psychiatric nursing degree for Mr Sube, who works ten hours a week as a care support worker.
We found one bedroom of their end-of-terrace four-bed in Bletchley, Bucks was being used as a study and saw an X Box, laptops, android phones and a Sky HD box.
Yet Mr Sube, whose family had cost taxpayers £100,000 in the previous year, moaned the house was too small and they barely had enough money to live.
They had turned down homes, including a five-bed, because wanted a six-bed property.
They softened their stance when the council warned they could lose their right to housing by making themselves homeless — but still insisted on a separate dining room.
When asked about her new home, Mrs Sube claimed: “Arnold does not live here.” She refused to pass on contact details, demanding: “How did you get this address?”
Luton Borough Council, responsible for homing the family, said: “The council is focused on its statutory duty. To protect privacy, it is not in a position to provide updates on individual cases.”
