Ugandan comic Anne Kansiime is happily dating after parting ways with her ex-husband Gerald Ojok after five years in marriage. They divorced two years ago. Well, while speaking in an interview with a Ugandan media personality Nana Kaga, Anne said that she rushed into marriage and all didn’t go well but she has learnt a few lessons from that.
She revealed that she contributed to her bride price.
I ACCUSED SOMEONE OF MARRYING ME LONG ENOUGH FOR THE WHOLE WORLD TO BELIEVE IT AND HIM TO BELIEVE IT AND I ALSO BELIEVED IT. LATER WHEN I REALIZED THAT WHEN YOU ARE MARRIED, IT IS WHEN A MAN WAKES UP ON HIS TWO FEET, PAYS YOUR BRIDE PRICE, TAKES YOU TO CHURCH AND THEN MARRIES YOU; NONE OF THAT HAD HAPPENED,’ SHE SAID.
I DO NOT WANT TO GO INTO THE DETAILS. I WAS MARRIED BUT YOU KNOW HOW YOU END UP PAYING SOME OF IT FOR YOURSELF. IT IS SAD, DO NOT LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT, AND I AM NOW AN EMPOWERED WOMAN.
Asked why she helped her ex-husband pay for her bride price, Kansiime said,
YOU KNOW WHEN YOU LOVE SOMEONE, ALL YOU WANT TO DO IS MAKE THEM ABLE TO PAY FOR YOU, ABLE TO AFFORD YOU AS FAR AS DOWRY IS CONCERNED.
The comic, who’s the host of East Africa got Talent (EAGT) is in love with media personality Skylanta.
