Ugandan Female Councilor Weds Her Man In A SHRINE. Photos

A Ugandan councilor’s decision to wed in a shrine has caused mixed reactions from her electorate. Mukono Central Division female youth councilor, Ruth Nakamatte, exchanged marriage vows with her fiancée in a shrine.

Nakamatte was traditionally wedded to Buyondo Manyigaalubaale, in a wedding presided over by the heads of the traditional healer’s in Uganda. The function was held at the traditional healers’ headquarters at Ttakajjunge village in Nama sub-county in Mukono district on Sunday. Nakamatte was baptized in church and named Ruth but she denounced it to adopt Namukasa. Unlike the past where traditional healers where known to be operating in darkness, this time they did everything in broad day light. They also had recorded music and melodious singers who performed music interludes of the tunes praising the African culture. They were only heard singing four choruses of traditional songs with drums only once as they were starting the service.
