The National Unity Platform party Deputy Spokesperson Alex Waiswa Mufumbiro yesterday exchanged marital vows with his wife Edith Katende at a historical wedding ceremony held at Namirembe Cathedral.
The wedding bells attracted delegations of prominent politicians like former presidential candidate Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine, various NUP party bigwigs, and Members of Parliament.
The reception was at One Love Beach in Busabala where NUP supporters and Waiswa’s ex-classmates and colleagues flanked the function in glittering attire.
Among the notable guests was four-time presidential candidate Rtd. Col. Dr. Kizza Besigye, Busiro East MP Medard Lubega Ssegona, Mityana municipality MP Zaake Francis Butebi, Kampala City Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago, the NUP secretary general David Lewis Rubongoya among others.
It was pomp and glamor as the outspoken Waiswa clad in a glittering suit humbled himself and walked down the aisle to tie the knot with his wife Edith Katende.
The couple is said to have dated for close to a decade according to Waiswa’s speech. “I promised you 10 years ago that I will give you one of the best weddings ever. Thank you for being a patient woman,” Waiswa said.
In his speech, Bobi Wine in the company of his wife Barbie Ithungo Kyagulanyi commended Waiswa for taking that step and welcomed him to the league of men.
