An elderly couple in Uganda has taken another chance at love. A 90-year-old groom recently weds his 83-year-old bride on Wednesday, December 27, 2017.
According to Naija, the wedding ceremony was held at Saint James Cathedral, Kigorobya, Hoima District.
Yakono and Jane Rwakaikara were joined together in holy matrimony by a retired bishop. Diocese Nathan Kyamanywa, the retired bishop of Bunyoro Kitara thanked the couple for taking another chance at love. He told the congregation that it was not too late to take God’s way.
Bishop Kyamanywa noted the couple has challenged the young generation to also follow the way of God. He further added that he had never wedded a couple as old as the Rwakaikara, saying that it is a blessing to him.
According to New Vision, the groom is famous in Uganda for supporting the National Resistance Movement (NRM) bush struggle in which he lost some of his children.
The NRM is a political party that was formed after the Ugandan Bush War, a war waged between 1981 and 1986 in Uganda by the National Resistance Army under the leadership of Yoweri Museveni against the government of Milton Obote.
