Busoga Royal Wedding: Long-Awaited Ceremony To Take Place Today

After long weeks of waiting and intense preparations, the Busoga Royal wedding is finally just a few hours away. The King (Kyabazinga) Wilberforce Nadiope Kadhumbula Gabula IV will be exchanging marital vows today with his Queen Jovia Mutesi at Christ Cathedral in Jinja City.

The King will later host his guests at his Palace in Bugembe where about 2000 are expected in attendance.

Loyal subjects made final touches on the venue of the main celebration at the palace. They erected a massive marquee and expertly decorated it.

Across the 11 counties in Busoga Kingdom, venues have been set up for the kingdom subjects to watch the wedding service and reception live. There will also be plenty to eat and drink at all these venues.

In Jinja city and different townships in Busoga, drums rang out throughout Friday as subjects danced, partied and processioned in the streets ahead of the big day,

Last evening, the Katukiro (Prime Minister of Busoga) Joseph Muvawala called for peaceful and responsible celebrations.

Our joy and celebrations should not negatively affect other people,” he said.

At a press conference which was also attended by security commanders from the region, Muvawala revealed that the wedding at the cathedral will commence at exactly 11:am and end at 1:00 pm

We call upon all the people out there to avoid thronging the road to prevent our King from arriving here in time,” he said

Jamal Basalirwa, the head of the Police Protocol Unit said there will be no traffic diversions on the highway. He noted that they decided not to turn the celebrations in Busoga into a nightmare.

This is especially for other people traveling and moving their goods on the highway to the east. He, however, warned that uninvited people will not be allowed at the main wedding venue in Bugembe.

“In all the counties in the Kingdom, the function will be live and therefore, there is no need for you to come from anywhere to Bugembe,” he said

The invitation cards that were sent out are fitted with chips. These will be scanned at the entrance to reveal the identity of the guest and their allocated seats.
