MARRIAGE

The Bishop of West Buganda diocese Rt Rev Henry Katumba Tamale has said that men without employment should be discouraged from taking the holy sacrament of marriage.

Katumba made the remarks while delivering his sermon as the main celebrant at the royal wedding in London over the weekend in which Prince Herbert Kateregga and Salomy Mirembe Nakabaale took their vows at St. John the evangelist Church London Waterloo.

Katumba said men were created physically strong to protect their wives and to work and provide according to the biblical scriptures and doing otherwise makes it practically hard for them to fulfil their family roles.

“After God had created man, he then went ahead to create a woman for him," he said.

"I am also married to a woman,” he emphasised pointing at his wife Rev. Elizabeth Julia Katumba Tamale with whom they travelled to London.

He also appealed to the newly wedded couple to make their homes the first church for it yields a stable family, a strong church and nation.

The wedding presided over by Rev. Dr. Godfrey Kaziro was attended by the Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II. Mutebi is the elder brother of the groom, Prince Herbert  Kateregga.

Others in attendance were prominent members of the royal family that included; Nnalinya Agnes Nabaloga, Nnalinya Elizabeth Nakabiri Ssengaaga, Prince Kiweewa Crispin Jjunju, Prince David Namugala Mawanda among others.

Also in attendance were MPs Medard Lubega Ssegona (Busiro East), Ssempala Kigozi Ssajjalyabeene (Makindye Ssabagabo) and Wakiso district chairman Matia Lwanga Bwanika.

After the Church ceremony, the royal couple were hosted to the annual Buganda dinner featuring the royal wedding reception at the Royal National Hotel in Central London.
