The purpose of life is to have a family for propagation of the human race, President Yoweri Museveni has said.

The President made the remarks on Saturday during the giveaway ceremony of Eureka Kyobutungi, daughter of Elly Karuhanga, who was betrothed to Wesley Musinga Nyakabwa.

The ceremony took place at the bride’s home in Kyakabunga, Nyabushozi county, Kiruhura district.

Karuhanga, a former Nyabushozi county MP, is the honorary consul of Seychelles to Uganda.

The groom is son to the late Vincent Nyakabwa and Alex Nyakabwa of Kanyambeho village, Burahya county in Kabarole district.

According to a State House press statement, Museveni commended Ugandans for rejecting homosexuality.

He advised them to distance themselves from negative foreign cultures.

Same-sex marriages are outlawed in Uganda. Recently, the Church of Uganda along with other Anglican provinces in Africa broke ties with Canterbury, the main Anglican seat, over the matter.

The bishops blamed the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, for being lenient to the pro-gay Episcopal Church of the US and the Anglican Church of Canada.

Museveni noted that the issue of having spinsters and bachelors was quite alien to Ugandan traditions.

The President commended Wesley and Eureka for starting their holy matrimony and lauded Karuhanga and other elites for developing their rural homes.

Museveni donated two Friesian cows to the bride.

Karuhanga saluted the President for blessing the ceremony with his presence and thanked him and the First Lady for helping educate Eureka.

The Ankole North diocese bishop, John Muhanguzi, said marriage was established by God and urged couples to be tolerant to each other.
