Earlier today, photos of NRM tycoon, Al-Haji Suleiman Mafabi Lumolo and Ugandan Ambassador to Zimbabwe, H.E Amb Barbara Nekesa emerged on Hon. Kiyingi Asuman’s Facebook page in what looked like a marriage ceremony.
Hon. Asuman posted the photos with a message congratulating the couple upon the function and wishing them what he called “happy returns”. Some of the photos posted have since been deleted.
The couple wore matching wedding finery in gold and red. Nekesa, the bride added red to make her outfit pop. Their attire was visibly similar to the recently wedded American singer Nick Jonas and Indian movie star, Priyanka Chopra’s wedding party.
They also changed into another outfit of blue and gold.
The couple has been together for almost two years now. Nekesa was formerly married to Charles Oundo, a Foreign Service officer, with whom they have two children.
Lumolo and Nekesa also have a child together and reportedly, when Nekesa was made Ambassador of Uganda to South Africa, she went with Lumolo and introduced him as her spouse and a shrewd business man to then president of South Africa, Jacob Zuma. Earlier this year in June, she was made Ambassador of Uganda to Zimbabwe.
Suleiman Mafabi is NRM Sironko District Chairperson and is also a leading dealer in importing new and used Japan vehicles in Uganda among others. He is famously known as the proprietor of Kampala Modernity car bond based in Bugoloobi.
Suleiman reportedly also has another wife (First wife) with whom he has children.
