According to reports from Uganda, a popular female Councillor identified as Ruth Nakamatte has wedded her man, Buyondo Manyigaalubaale inside a shrine in their village.
The marriage ceremony was presided over by the heads of the traditional healers in Uganda. The couple’s decision has stirred up a lot of controversy. However, the Mukono Central Division female youth councillor, doesn’t seem bothered. Nakamatte was baptised in church and christened Ruth but she denounced her faith to adopt Namukasa.
Nakamatte arrived dressed in a wedding gown which she later changed to wear a barkcloth dress. Unlike the past where traditional healers where known to be operating in darkness, this time they did everything in broad daylight. In the shrine, they exchanged marital vows. They also had recorded music and melodious singers who performed music interludes of the tunes praising the African culture.
The event presided over by the two traditional healers, Kabona Jjumba Aligaweesa and Kabona Kayondo Nyongeraako held at the traditional healers’ headquarters at Ttakajjunge village in Nama sub-county in Mukono district on Sunday.
