Celebrated journalist Charles Odongtho walked down the aisle with his newlywed wife Linda Bernadette Kyarikora yesterday on November 30, 2019, at St. Charles Lwanga Catholic Parish Ntinda. The couple hosted their guests in a lavish dinner reception at Naguru Hill Top Lounge.
Their guest list included Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda who was guest of honor, the Alur paramount King Rwoth Ubimo Olaker Rauni III, Padyere MP Joshua Anyarwarach and Gen Mugisha Muntu the national coordinator Alliance for National Transformation (ANT). Also in attendance was DP president Nobert Mao, senior journalists, multitudes of relatives, friends and in-laws.
Odongtho told his guests that he met his wife whom he had been quietly admiring when she was doing an assignment her boss Hon. Mary Paula Turyahikayo, had given her. She had to call him so that he could coordinate a team of journalists to cover Hon. Rebecca Kadaga, the speaker of parliament as she toured western Uganda last year in August.
When Linda called Charles, he decided that they first close a love deal between them as the media coordination waited.
And as it is always said, the rest is history.
