Cynthia and Ron Kawamara’s wedding was officiated by Bishop Kisembo. During the sermon, he criticized parents for demanding expensive bride price that most Ugandan youths are unable to afford. He said, “Parents should stop this habit of asking too much bride price from your sons-in-law for your daughters.”
He added: “When you say you are asking bride price because you educated your daughters, remember that even the parents of the young men, educated their sons.”
He also talked against the habit of putting pressure on children and families to throw big and expensive wedding parties.
“I want to tell you that the cost of a wedding party, the size of the cake and type of cameras taking photos don’t determine the quality of marriage you will have. Be modest, respect each other, trust God,” said Bishop Kisembo.
The function was attended by many high profile people including Omukama of Tooro, Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru.
The President gave the new couples a gift of ten cows in cash valued at Shs10million.
