As the world unboxed Christmas presents on Boxing Day, Makindye East Member of Parliament, Hon Derrick Nyeko with a fresh haircut and brown coat bent his knee on the red carpet, surrounded by bright candles and red flowers, unboxed a ring and posed the big question.
He shared the good news on his Twitter page once his girlfriend, clad in a short sweet black dress agreed to make him her husband,
“It’s a YES. I fell in love with you not knowing one day I will fulfill the promises of knowing what love really was. I stayed in love with you because there’s no one or nothing I’ve ever wanted more than you. I will forever be in love with you,”
wrote an excited Nyeko.
Hon Derrick has been congratulated by friends and fans,
