Over the weekend, Sylvia Bakireke, daughter to Uganda’s famous Member of Parliament representing Mukono municipality, Betty Nambooze Bakireke introduced her fiancé Peter Muhumuza at her parent’s home in Nakabago, Mukono in a kukyala ceremony.
Hon Nambooze advised the couple to go ahead and organize a church wedding rather than a kwanjula so that they could save enough money to start their family.
She also added that she would not stop them from having a big wedding ceremony if they want to but her advice is that they keep it small because she believes wedding ceremonies shouldn’t be so expensive.
The couple that looked stunning in their outfits couldn’t help but keep smiling throughout the entire ceremony.
Sylvia was beautifully dressed in a white gomesi embedded with white beads that she accessorized with a green sash and a matching hair accessory. She later changed into a simple grey designer evening gown leaving her hair in an updo as before.
Muhumuza, wore a white traditional Kanzu coupling it with a checked blue coat.
Sylvia is currently working as a human rights lawyer and Muhumuza as music director at Janzi band and procurement specialist.
