When James Asaba, an entrepreneur was first directed to Twinomujuni Deborah for assistance during his days at University, it did not occur to him that the two of them would end up as husband and wife just a couple of years later.
Asaba, the founder of Asaba Legacy Company Limited, a company that deals in printing and branding among other things met his wife Deborah, a senior Policy Analyst at Makerere University.
“We met in 2010 at Makerere University. She was a class representative and I had a problem with some course unit called Introduction to Mathematics for Economists, they directed me to her for help,” Asaba told Mikolo.
Having known her on a friendly level since their days at the university, they dated for about one year before he asked for her hand in marriage on 17th November 2015 and the two lovebirds had their kukyala on 22nd April 2016.
Four months later, Deborah hosted James at her parents’ home in “Bukomansimbi Town on 30th July 2016” for their traditional wedding.
He reciprocated the lovely gesture as he walked Deborah down the aisle on 6th August of the same year in a beautiful white wedding.
The couple, who have since been blessed with two handsome boys exchanged their vows at St. Francis Chapel Makerere, had a photo shoot at Bahai temple gardens before proceeding to their reception at Watoto church Gardens in Kyengera.
