First it was House of Prayer Ministries International pastor Aloysius Bugingo who denied being introduced by Suzan Makula Nantaba last month. Then Pastor Simeon Kayiwa of Namirembe Christian Fellowship followed suit, denying ever attending a kwanjula in Kawuku, Katabi Town Council, Wakiso district in early December. The man of God said he only went to pray at a get-together of Bugingo’s friends.
Makula has joined the bandwagon. This comes hot on the heels of a court case in which Makula and Bugingo are accused of contracting a marriage while he is still legally married to Teddy Naluswa. They are to appear before court on January 21 over the case.
In a recent TV interview, Makula termed Bugingo as her husband-to-be. She said the ceremony they had in November was a kumanyagana and not a kwanjula.
When the TV host pressed Makula on the videos that circulated, seemingly showing her getting married, she gave a lecture on the steps involved in getting married.
Makula explained why she was dressed in a flamboyant gomesi, typically worn by brides.
“There are people who wear gomesis to attend kwanjula or be introduced in a kwanjula ceremony. There are people who wear gomesis for music videos. I like wearing gomesis to church. I was only showing my friends and parents the man who is interested in marrying me. I am waiting to be married. I needed to dress well to represent my family, to show that we have some money.”
Makula went on, “The person I want to get married to is a public figure. Since we were not doing anything wrong by hosting guests, we decided to broadcast the event publicly.”
She said after showing a man to your parents, you let them decide whether they want him to marry into your family or not. If the outcome is positive, the parents then write a letter to the church, giving their approval.
“After the church receives this letter, you can then go ahead and be joined in holy matrimony. Since I am Born-Again Christian, it is this letter I am waiting for.”
