Over the weekend, the first family’s eldest daughter and pastor, Patience Rwabwogo along with her husband, Odrek Rwabwogo hosted their parents (President Kaguta and Janet Museveni) along with other family members and friends to the couple’s 20th anniversary.
Patience and Odrek took the opportunity to renew their vows in a service led by Bishop Joshua Lwere as well as Pastor Wilson Mugarura among other clergies.
The beautiful ceremony and reception were hosted by the lakeside of L. Kakyeera in Kiruhura district.
Bishop Lwere applauded the couple for this gesture and encouraged the married people to respect their marriages and fight for them. Patience’s father President Museveni echoed Bishop Lwere’s message as he congratulated the couple for being patient with each other for all 20 years.
During his speech, President reiterated how his family has always been protected by God saying, “When I come here to celebrate 20 years of Odrek and Patience Rwabwogo’s marriage, my memory goes back and I thank God. Our children were protected by God during that abnormal period and he has prospered them.”
He went on to add, “This is because we did not live a normal life. Uganda was not stable and we decided to join a group of youths who could not agree with the bad things. Instead of living a normal life, we went fighting. I want to thank God for seeing us through this situation.”
