Nakyobe cautioned State House staff against using the State House assignments as excuse to evade family responsibilities, saying amid their heavy schedules, they should have time for their families.
MARRIAGE STATE HOUSE EMPLOYEES
State House Comptroller Lucy Nakyobe Mbonye urged women to always value their marriage and respect their husbands regardless of their social status, saying roles of husbands and wives will never be substituted.
She added that those calling for gender equality should not confuse the competition for social space with the sacred institution of marriage, which she said is constructed on legal instruments and as sanctified by God.
She urged State House employees to be in responsible family relationships, saying society expects them to be of high moral standing and responsible individuals as people serving the presidency.

She said State House staff need understanding spouses because serving the Presidency involves a lot of time, leaving much of family affairs to their spouses, adding that staff at State House have no holidays, no weekends and no Christmas as they work all time round.
She was speaking during the wedding reception of one of State House staff Nathan Ouma, who married Milly Nalwanga at Namirembe Cathedral on Saturday. The reception was held at the Uganda Catholic Management and Training Institute in Rubaga.
Nakyobe, however, cautioned State House staff against using the State House assignments as excuse to evade family responsibilities, saying amid their heavy schedules, they should have time for their families to be able to raise responsible families the country will be proud of.
