Destiny had it that Arthur Kasirye and Cerinah Nalwoga would eventually get married.
The two were friends in high school between 2007 and 2008, confided in each other, and were a ‘couple’ on their Senior Four prom date in 2008.
After 2008, they went separate ways and lost contact until January 2019 when they met at Innovation Village, in Ntinda. He was glad to reconnect with her as they reignited their friendship
She was still the God-fearing girl he knew but their interaction this time came with much more. She was older, prettier and her values had not changed a bit which drew him in.
Along the way, he started developing feelings for her. But his heart would skip at the thought of losing her if he confessed that he was attracted to her in a romantic way.
Their connection had grown deep to a point that he considered her his best friend.
He acted smart, inviting her to become his business partner at Kasirye Labs, an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) company he founded and operates.
She accepted and fruitfully complemented him.
He only discovered that love is hard to kill when Nalwoga told him that she was going out of town, to Masindi, with a friend.
He asked to join them.
She asked her friend if she was okay if he could come.
The friend accepted.
“I had worked for two years with no break. In the ICT world, you may have international clients who keep you busy, even at night, because of the time differences so I needed to take a break and I was happy to spend it with her,” Kasirye recalls.
The trio had fun, went bird watching, and bonded while at it. He liked her and for a second, he thought how embarrassing it would have turned out if she got hooked and married to someone else when she was right before his eyes every day and knew she had the traits she admired and sought.
After the trip to Masindi, he confirmed that she was single and available. Click to read more
