Emmanuel Tumwesigye and Irene Nakanywagi are both doctors, having trained at Mulago Hospital. It is here that they first met each other in 2013 and became inseparable friends.
The two even went to the same church, St Luke Chapel Mulago and were both church leaders. Emmanuel was the head of machines while Irene was a leader of a cell.
Despite being very good friends, the two did not start dating until 2014 when Emmanuel approached Irene and openly told her that he wanted her to be his wife.
“One thing I can’t forget is that when he approached me, he requested me to be his future wife and not just a girlfriend. It made me realize how serious my husband was” Irene comments.
Irene describes him as a God fearing, confident, compassionate, and hardworking and a man of great integrity
According to Emmanuel, he wanted to be married before he left school so as to start a family early and gain stability.
He says that he had studied Irene for a year and liked her ways like the way she paid attention, the way she spoke and carried herself.
“We had a simple friendship for a year but within that time, I had started getting interested because I liked almost everything about her. She had most of the characters that I would want in a wife but I hesitated to tell her because of the culture difference,” Emmanuel adds. Click to read more…
