Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine and Barbara Itungo alias Barbie, exchanged their vows on the same date as the Kabaka of Buganda though in a different year at Rubaga Cathedral.Esther Oluka highlights what you missed.
Why did you choose August 27, 2011 as your wedding date?
Bobi Wine: We chose the date because it was the same as Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II’s wedding date to the Nnabagereka, Sylvia Nagginda Luswata. The two wedded on August 27, 1999.
How much did you spend on the wedding?
Bobi Wine: It was over Shs500m. Much as we spent this amount, we were offered most of the services free of charge on that day.
How did you manage to raise this amount of money?
Bobi Wine: Our savings as well as people’s contributions.
Your best part of the wedding was…?
Bobi Wine: When I saw Barbie’s father, Dr Gershom Kagaaju walking her down the aisle. It was such a beautiful moment.
Also, when the Kabaka’s gift was presented to my wife and I at the reception. Although he did not make it to the wedding, I was very humbled that he apologised in a letter and wished us the best in our marriage.
