- Episode sealed: Benard Byamukama and Esther Kalemwa met at a youth conference at their church. Their meeting was the beginning of love although it took them four years to date. The couple spoke more with Phoebe Masongole.
Bernard Byamukama and Esther Kalemwa were church mates and part of organisers of youth conference that was scheduled to take place in December 2017 at Kingdom of Grace Believers Church-Kijungu in Hoima City.
The two attended the conference but little did they know that it was going to be the start of their love life.

“I did not feel anything for her apart from being a friend. But to my wife, she recently opened up to me that that particular day she saw love in my eyes but could not do anything,” he adds.

“Social media platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook and phone calls were our major mode of communication because I was in Kampala and Bernard in Hoima,” she says.
