President Museveni left revelers in stitches with his witty speech at the giveaway ceremony of Ms Annette Twebaze to Mr Bright Kamuhanda in Muhanga Town Council in Kabale over the weekend.

A cattle-loving man, Museveni, 71, a father of three officially married daughters was given the task of blessing the young couple in the traditional way – that is, to speculate about what’s going on in marriages today and, ultimately, gives them some wealth to multiply.

Born in western Uganda to a cattle-rearing family, he has always said he plans to be a herder on his retirement.

And now we know the Kamuhandas are now richer after gave Ms Twebaze a gift (Okushagara) of 10 cows for making her parents happy.

“When a child gets married, it shows that the parents have done a good job raising that child. Marriage is also important because it enables procreation and assures continuity of the human race. It is also vital that when people marry, they build a home and sire children,’ Museveni said.

“I commended the bride and groom for making their parents proud and tasked young people to emulate the industry of their parents. If your parents bequeath you wealth as a youth, work hard to make sure you multiply it,’ he added.

Ms Twebaze is a daughter of Apollo and Vangelista Nyegamahe, a prominent business couple and our committed NRM supporters, while Mr Kamuhanda is son of John and Generous Bashinyora of Kinkizi in Kanungu District.
