Alison Anna Gabula, a woman who claims to be officially married to His Royal Highness William Gabula Nadiope IV, the Kyabazinga of Busoga Kingdom, has recently informed this website about her efforts to prevent the highly anticipated royal wedding between her alleged husband and Jovia Mutesi next week.
In a recent development, she disclosed making a phone call to Dr. Steven Kazimba Mugalu, the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, cautioning him against presiding over the event, claiming it would be devil’s temptation.
According to Anna, during their brief conversation, Archbishop Kazimba allegedly assured her that he would consult with President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni before making any decisions.
In an interesting twist, Anna has taken legal action to safeguard her marriage interests in Uganda. She has engaged the law firm of Mugerwa & Partners for this purpose, while Anne Cuthbert Solicitors Limited is reportedly dealing with the British government on behalf of their citizen.
The nursing officer, currently practicing in London, has extended her plea for intervention to the Office of King Charles III, the Cultural leader of the United Kingdom.
East African Vibes has obtained a letter from Mugerwa & Partners Advocates addressed to Persis Faith Wakabi on behalf of the Office of the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda. The letter serves as a warning to Dr. Kazimba, urging him not to officiate the controversial marriage.
The letter from the legal team states, “Our client is the legally married wife to William Gabula, the Kyabazinga of Busoga Kingdom, having celebrated a Civil Marriage in December 2016 at Milldam House Burnaby Road, Portsmouth Po13AF under Marriage Certificate AK5947291.”
It goes on to say, “This serves to notify the Church of our client’s objection and request that the honorable Church of Uganda does not proceed to wed Mr. William Kadhumbula Gabula, the Kyabazinga of Busoga, with Ms. Jovia Mutesi, during the subsistence of our client’s marriage as the same would amount to bigamy and be contrary to church canons.”
