Man weds second woman at first sight
Residents of Kyetume in Nakisunga, Mukono District, were on Tuesday treated to a matrimonial drama when a man courted and married a woman within four hours of their first meeting.
Mr Mali Kaigwa, 35, self-employed, married Ms Rose Nansubuga, whom he had met at a nearby bar four hours before. He immediately organised a “wedding” ceremony at his home village in Kyetume in Nakisunga sub-county. Mr Kaigwa accuses his first wife Joanita Nakubulwa of misconduct including adultery, which he claims resulted in the birth of two children with another man.
He also accused her of being disrespectful, dishonest and being a drunkard. Kaigwa said he married Ms Nansubuga as a punishment to Ms Nakubulwa with whom he had spent about 10 years.
The marriage was as dramatic as the reception. Present at the “wedding” ceremony which kicked off in the late evening on Tuesday was Kaigwa’s first wife Nakubulwa, who watched the proceedings in silence.
The ceremony was facilitated by Kaigwa’s villagemates and area local councillors.
