What is important about a marriage ceremony are the legal and spiritual elements, not the social fanfare, according to President Yoweri Museveni.
Museveni was among 14 who witnessed the scientific wedding ceremony of Phiona Akoragyea and Herbert Kihanda in Entebbe on Saturday.
The President confirmed: “Mama Janet Museveni and I attended the “scientific” wedding of my cousin, Phiona Akoragye, and her husband, Herbert Kihanda, in Entebbe on Saturday.”
Museveni hailed: “I thank Archbishop Steven Kazimba for presiding over this function that had a total of 14 guests.”
The head of state said: “Like I have said previously, what is important about a marriage ceremony are the legal and spiritual elements, not the social fanfare. I wish the couple a blissful marriage.”
Museveni recollected: “Phiona’s father, the Late Mzee Eriya Riisi, was a brother to my father, Late Mzee Amos Kaguta. Herbert is a son of Late Cosmas Mbagaya and Edida Katendwa Kasharu.”
