Ms Hope Ramaphosa, the mother of Andile Ramaphosa, has arrived in Uganda for her son’s kuhingira (traditional marriage) to Bridget Birungi that is due to take place on Saturday. Hope Ramaphosa was welcomed by Mbabazi’s wife, Jacqueline Mbabazi, after she arrived in Uganda on Wednesday.

The traditional ceremony will take place at former Prime Minister, Amama Mbabazi’s home in Kololo, an upscale city neighbourhood.

A traditional ceremony known as okushaba, where the groom-to-be visits the bride’s family to propose the marriage, was earlier held on May 19 at Mbabazi’s home. Andile was slapped with a fine of a goat, for reportedly fathering a child with Birungi before marriage.

Ms Birungi, a niece to former prime minister and presidential candidate, Amama Mbabazi is set to walk down the aisle with Andile sometime this year.
