- Mary Namatovu got engaged recently and went for a traditional introduction ceremony at her fiancé's home
- With social gatherings being banned in Uganda, Namatovu took to social media to let the world know she was getting married soon
- She asked whoever may be objected to their union to come forward and say so before the wedding day
The coronavirus pandemic has pushed people to the edges, disrupted people's plans and has instead reintroduced a new norm whose end is very uncertain.
Nothing can illustrate this statement better than what a Ugandan lady did in a bid to protect herself from disappointments that come with marriages.
With weddings and churches being banned and in some cases being restricted to a specific number of people, Mary Namatovu had to find a way to let the world know she is getting married soon.
The soon-to-be-wed bride took to Facebook to let everybody know that she was engaged and whoever had an objection to their union should come out early enough.
Natomovu posted her fiancé's photo asking all those he may be married to or engaged or those he may have sired children with to come forward before the d-day.
“Hey people, his name is Jonathan Katamba, the last born of four, the most amazingly faithful surveyor, property seller and manager I know in Uganda. He says he wants to marry me. If anyone objects this, speak now. If he is engaged to you please speak now, if he has a child with you speak now. When he marries me, please hold your peace,” she wrote.
The two have been long-term friends and they held a traditional introduction ceremony on June 21 and they are now waiting for the day to tie the knot.
In other news, just like the Biblical story of Hannah, Githurai couple Florence Makena and her husband John Gitobu feel like they have been touched by an angel after 21 years of crying.
The two who have stuck by each other through thick and thin had all the love in the world but no children to share it with.
But God smiled at them and granted them not one, not two but three children all at once after being childless for more than two decades.
