Yesterday, Pr Aloysious Bugingo and Suzan Makula Nantaba successfully held an introduction ceremony that saw some bigwigs in attendance.
However, their celebrations may be cut short after lawyer Male Mabirizi decided to report a criminal case against the couple.
According to Mabirizi, the statement of offence is contracting marriage by customary law when Bugingo is already married under the marriage act which is contrary to section 50 of the marriage act CAP.251. While Suzan Makula is accused of getting married to a person who is still married contrary to section 42 of the Marriage Act CAP.251.
