Charles Bbale Mayiga is the son to the Katikkiro of Buganda, Charles Peter Mayiga.
The couple was wedded by the main celebrant, Rt. Rev. Bishop of Masaka Catholic Diocese, Serverus Jjumba and witnessed by several dignitaries including Nnabagereka of Buganda, Sylvia Nagginda, Chief Justice, Alfonse Owiny-Dollo, among others.
While blessing the marriage, Rt. Rev. Jjumba made a call to the newlyweds to put God ahead of anything else and remain faithful to one another.
“This is a covenant that needs divine assistance. Uphold and respect your marriage vows and dedicate it God. Above all, love one another,” he said.
Speaker Among, who was the chief guest, thanked the parents of the newlyweds for nurturing and aligning their children with the norms, values and cultures of the African society that respects the sanctity of marriage.
She advised the young couple to build their marriage on true love and friendship.
“You are coming from different backgrounds and this comes with different values and attitudes. Make sure you get a mutual ground to live happily together. Be best friends if you are to have an eternal relationship,” Among said.
Among advised the bride to respect her new family and remain submissive to her husband.
“Sonia, as you go into the new family, your father-in-law and mother-in-law are now your father and mother in love,” she said.
The Speaker added, “Be a good wife, respect your husband. For me after chairing the House, I run home to cook for Mr. Magogo. When I am home, I am a wife and when I am at Parliament, I am a Speaker.”
She gifted the couple with 10 heads of cattle and wished them a blissful marriage.
