The Prince and his fiancee, Ms Marion Nankya will tie the knot at Rubaga Cathedral
Thousands of Buganda historicals, dignitaries and friends will converge at Rubaga Cathedral today to witness Prince David Wasajja exchange vows with fiancée Ms Marion Nankya.
This puts end to questions as to why the 47-year-old had taken long to get married.
When Prince Wasajja announced last year that he would marry Ms Nankya, daughter to Bukoto South MP, Mr Mathias Nsubuga, the Buganda fraternity was excited.
Several artistes offered to compose an official song for the wedding but by Wednesday, the organising committee, led by city businessman Godfrey Kirumira refused it on request of the Prince.
The Prince and his fiancée have been holding a series of bachelor’s parties at Buwama, Club Silk, Amnesia and Guvnor since last Saturday.
“The Prince is going to wed his wife-to-be at Rubaga Cathedral Church at midday. The Kabaka, his (Wasajja) elder brother, will host at least 1,000 invited guests at their ancestral home at Twekobe in Lubiri Mengo,” Mr Charles Peter Mayiga, the Buganda information minister, said.
Mr Mayiga also said the Kampala Archbishop, Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, would officiate at the wedding.
Mr Mayiga said Prince Wasajja was an exemplary leader to the youth whom he had mobilised under the kingdom’s organs.
By Thursday, there was a beehive of activity at Twekobe palace as tents and decorations were being erected for the function.
Gardens were being slashed as different Buganda enthusiasts monitored the preparations.
