Okwii-5

 

By Kampala Sun writers.

It started with a kiss; we’ve heard couples confess after years into marriage.  However, Uganda Cranes striker Emma Okwi was denied the privilege at his wedding last Saturday.

Even for couples wedded in Born Again Pentecostal Churches, after the vows have been exchanged and the wedding pronouncement given, the groom lifts the bride’s veil and kisses her.

Okwi’s bride, Florence Nakalegga had other ideas. She frantically rejected and looked away even as Pastor Robert Kayanja, who wed them at his Rubaga Miracle Centre, literally waited for the kiss to happen.

Whereas some in the crowd thought she frowned upon the kiss as it is a sign of bad etiquette in some families, we have since learnt that there was some friction between the couple on their big day.

While away from the public glare, we are made to understand that a private photographer hired to capture their intimate moments, begged her to show some more affection, in form of a peck or kiss to Okwi but she still refused.

Okwi was then made to pretend he was whispering into her ear, so the moment would be captured but she still looked away reducing him to a frustrated groom.

“Some people in the crowd (Okwi’s family), never wanted the wedding to happen. They have never warmed up to her because of her background and in going ahead with the wedding; it was Emma’s word against his family.

I couldn’t blame her for being gloomy or refusing to show affection.  It appears she was just going through the motions on her big day,” An insider told Kampala Sun Sport.

It is said that Okwi met the wife at Emin Pasha Hotel where she worked as a waitress. Even then, she has a child from another relationship.  However, Okwi’s Christian family who have privately claimed she doesn’t meet their expectations owing to her background, forget their son also has a child from previous relationship.

·        Soda reception angers Cranes players

In the name of team spirit and hope of exotic drinks Uganda Cranes players braved the Church service as they dreamt of fine wine and Champagne at the reception.   They never knew that Okwi had converted into a Born Again Christian.

Savio Kabugo was overheard saying that Okwi’s reason to wed in Church had a lot to do with his parents but they would have a blast at the reception.  It never happened.

However, to their surprise, the tables were full of soda and bottled water.  Players like Hassan Wasswa were shocked at how a vibrant player would decide to subject them to such torture.

The players communicated their shock through whatsapp chats.  Some thirsty players stormed out of the UMA Hall and bought beer at nearby bars.

Only Andy Mwesigwa, a teetotaller seemed to enjoy the wedding.  He branded it marvellous in his speech.

“I have been challenged to organize my wedding soon. I introduced first but I have not wedded for five years now.  You have challenged me,”

Mwesigwa told the gathering which included Eng. Moses Magogo, Cranes Coach Micho Sredejovic, and Col. Felix Kulaigye among other notable guests.  ​

  1. This bride is very annoying. Looks to be an unreasonable person. If there were issues then she should not have showed it to the guests. It is obvious that there was something that she wanted and did not get but that is something she could have handled with her man without showing all of us. Eh? Bad manners. Pray for their marriage bambi.
