The bishop emeritus of Lugazi diocese, Mathias Ssekamanya has on Sunday June 25, 2023 conducted a mass wedding of 11 couples as St. Paul Catholic Parish celebrated their 26th anniversary.

The couples include; Moses Musanje who was formerly a bodaboda rider before one of his legs was amputated following a road accident. Musanje has been wedded with his fiancé, Proscovia Nalwoga.

A Rastafarian, Emmanuel Kasule has also tied the knot with Victoria Kisakye, an old man, Atanansi Batasingwa has been wedded with his wife, Betty Humura.

The believers were heard whispering to each other asking how Rasta Kasule got married in church with his dreadlocks. But one of them reasoned saying this is not the first couple to be wedded with dreadlocks giving reference of National Unity Platform President and a Musician, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu a.k.a Bobi Wine and Joseph Mayanja alias Chameleon who were also wedded with the same hair style.

While delivering his homily, Bp. Ssekamanya asked the newly wedded couples to stick to their partners and completely avoid multiple lovers.

“Avoid over drinking, gambling and adultery. Stick to your partners whom you have willingly chosen from the many,” he urged.

I, (name), take you, (name) for my lawful wife/husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better , for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.”

About the current trend of women who have exhibited disloyalty to their husbands through the DNA tests which have found many children who are outside the official marriages saying that happens on both sides.

“Mr. Bakireke, my husband, was not kind about women saying, how come a DNA is taken and finds out that out of the six children, no one is for the official husband. But also men are not faithful, they keep giving birth to children outside marriage but we do not blow it out of proportion as men do to women,” she said.
