Renowned traditional herbalist Sylvia Namutebi aka Mama Fiina has entered Uganda’s records of women who have been married several times.
Mama Fiina was today officially wedded by Hajji Ismail Ssegujja, a Ugandan businessman based in the United Kingdom.
The wedding, which was highly secretive, took place at Kibuli Mosque, where they were united in the Islamic matrimonial ceremony known as Nikha.
Sources at the wedding revealed that Hajji Ssegujja gave Mama Fiina Amahare (dowry) of 4000 Pound Sterling, approximately Shs19,192,000 after which they left the Mosque to go consummate their marriage.
However, this is Mama Fiina’s third wedding, the second one having been with her deceased husband Maj. Mohammad Kiggundu, whom she married in 2015 at the Kibuli mosque.
Kiggundu was unfortunately gunned down last year with his bodyguard Sgt. Steven Mukasa by unknown gunmen who waylaid him in Masanafu, a city suburb, on his way to work.
But before marrying Maj. Kiggundu, Mama Fiina had been married to Hajji Ismail Ssekidde with whom she has grown up children.
It was from Ssekidde that Kiggundu snatched Mama Fiina before making their relationship official by getting wedded.
