Earlier this week, social media went crazy with pictures of a kwanjula ceremony due to the several gifts the groom had brought for his future wife’s parents.
Among the gifts neatly assembled in what is assumed to be the bride’s paternal home compound were several packets of flour, dozens of salt, several sacks of sugar, a number of 32-inch flat-screen TVs and among others.
The groom added that ever since he met his wife five years ago, his life has been moving on smoothly and he promises to add more to what he brought.
The groom, who goes by the name John Ssempija says all the gifts he brought were a simple appreciation and to him, his wife deserves more, “I had to give each of the family members a flat-screen. My wife is so hardworking and manages my business so well. She doesn’t allow me to spend carelessly.”
People have come out with all sorts of comments about the groom’s actions. While some are supporting him, others expressed their displeasure at the gesture.
Ssempija comes from a well-known rich family and he is said to be the brother to the owner of Maria’s Cargo, a shipping company in Kampala Uganda.
My Wedding wishes the couple the best on this new journey.
