It was a pure show of power, money and glamour as Minister Sam Kutesa’s son Isaac Kutesa tied the knot with his fiancée Yvette Kamurasi at Munyonyo Peace Hub in Kampala.
The ceremony was honored with the presence of President Yoweri Museveni as the young couple exchanged vows in holy matrimony.
Isaac Kutesa is son to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Sam Kahamba Kutesa and the late Jennifer Kutesa, while the bride, Yvette, is a daughter to Mr. & Mrs. Yona and Penninah Kamurasi of Mugore village, Rushere in Kiruhura district, according to online sources. Kamurasi is the elder brother of former Internal Affairs Minister, the late Gen Aronda Nyakairima.
The outdoor function was also attended by diplomatic dignitaries, government officials like the Deputy Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanya among many others.
While giving his remarks at the ceremony, President Museveni said; “it’s not easy for parents to see their children reach this stage.”
He also thanked God for protecting their families and the groom, Isaac, for perseverance and reaching this stage of marriage in life.
“During the bush war, these families faced too many problems. They politically faced it. As the children were growing, there followed the untimely demise of their mother Jennifer Kutesa. The good Lord really sympathised with these families because he put them on the right side during the political turmoil,” he added.
Presenting his sermon to the congregation, the retired Bishop of North Ankole Diocese John Muhanguzi noted that “no one who is an expert in marriage experience”.
“Tolerance and forgiveness are the keys to a successful marriage. Marriage is an institution of God and a blessing that sustains human society and where God does not make a mistake. And when Jesus steps in marriage, there can never be a disruption,” he added.
