Full statement below (unedited)
To Uganda, to family and to friends all over the world. I wanted to say on a serious note when things get tough you got to pray. Maybe if I was in Church like my pastor told me to be when he called each week this sadness, anger, bitterness would not have came out the way it did.
I love Princess Ruth Thomas she not a Komuntale anymore she is a Thomas. As a man you marry young you should know you have to be patient. I tried for over 9 months and it finally ran over because I kept everything inside.
Every marriage will have problems but the best ones are the one you bring to God and not FB or friends or sometimes not even family. You go to his people for advice ( the Church). I can say Ruth went to the wrong people and I went to nobody but I kept it in side and that's not good either.
I apologize to Tooro, To King Oyo, To Queen Mother Best I love you very much for taking me in and me being your son. I apologize for the things I said about you if it was true or not I should have kept it to myself because I am a Christian.
I apologize To my cupcakes, my sweetpea, butt butt, my beautiful, my angel, my Ruth, my Nsemere, my Komuntale, my bestie, my wife; it doesn't matter how mad you are you should never never talk about your wife in public places or on social media or in front of people to embarrass her I have done these things out of anger and sadness of being far away from my lover. A marriage is private not public!
Ruth and I are so much in Love we didn't know how to fight. Ruth has very much pride and is very head strong. Church, elder, Mom and dads where every you are talk to Ruth tell her divorce is not right in the house of God and bring her to her husband for counseling. If Ruth would apologize I would be running to my wife like nothing has happened.
I am not perfect so I have to forgive and forget. The pain will be there but God knows how to wash it away. Ruth is no cheater but she show do know how to make you feel like she is or she knows what buttons to push.
Probably any young woman knows how to do that to make their husband go crazy at times. I thought Ruth and I would see each other as old Africans. Its funny Ruth said I'm more African than she is lol...
So no more of this fighting between American and African please stop. Ruth and I dreamed of bring people to Christ together but I'm sad to say the Devil also had his plan of us bring death and destruction to Gods people.
So I ask everyone to change and forgive everyone after you see my post. Stop the fighting, stop the name calling, stop the hate. I also ask Ruth Thomas to forgive and let God. Talk to the bishop of Uganda and lets pray cry and forgive!
I love Uganda and will I always will love you. I don't have a PR, I don't have a spell check or grammar check. My wife was all this for me, because we balance each other. What I was good at I did , what she was good at she did. I will not do anymore interviews unless they are positive.
I talk to so many Ugandans and they know I have a good heart but everyone who is a sinner has a bad side but we pray everyday to keep that side away.
Does our age make us do things like this no, Our faith makes us do things like this.. My faith wasn't strong enough to be quiet and let Ruth do her in SA and wait for her to come to DC to then get her Aunt and her family to counsel Ruth as a married women , and to get elders and pastosr to counsel me as a married man, but I am here to say that anyone can change through Christ.
Anyone can forgive through Christ. Will Ruth family forgive and forget today I don't think so but if Ruth comes out and do the right thing as a Christian she will show the God in her and other people will follow. Ruth and I are leaders we suppose to lead.
So the right thing for me to do right now is to apologize to everyone on FB and the World for putting my marriage issues on FB. I let me pride , my ego , my weed as you say , my drink as you think to the Lord and I have faith that whatever happens between Ruth and I God will be pleased with me because I was man enough to apologize.
People will say I am crazy, I need help , and I need doctor and you are right because I am human and in Love.. Love make you do the craziest things and now I'm taking a jump of faith to apologize to everyone to calm everything down.
I want everyone to go on my page and my wife's page Princes Ruth Thomas and say you forgive us we are royals but human ....
The people of Uganda Love Ruth and I because we are Royals but we are REAL .... We don't hide, we speak our minds, we wear the clothes we want, and we kiss in public hehe!
So please forgive us for what we have done and caused this week. I want everyone in Uganda if you clean , if you stink, if you have a big house, if you got a small house, if you Christian, if you Muslim or any other religion and you believe in your God and you believe in marriage shake or hug a person next to you and say God bless you and God bless Ruth & Chris they will be on TOP.!!!!!!
Finally, I want to ask my mother Alecia Thomas to forgive her son that she loves so much for not acting the way she raised me in church since I came out of the you know what!
Alright I'm done have a good rest of the week and weekend , and pray for our marriage.. and I hope to one day see everyone in Uganda again next to my crazy bestie Ruth Thomas.......
Thank you THE DUKE Of Tooro!
