When Catherine Kalembe introduced Emma Mutaka to her parents in Kisozi Village, Kamuli District in 2010 as her fiancé, she was sure a wedding would follow shortly to cement their relationship. However, two years later and without a wedding ring, Ms Kalembe has decided to seek legal recourse, dragging her fiancé to court for allegedly failing to wed her. In what many in Iganga have described as a strange case, Ms Kalembe, a resident of Nkono Zone in the municipality, says Mr Mutaka, who is the National Agricultural Advisory Services, (Naads) coordinator for Bukanga Sub-county in Luuka District, should pay for failing to marry her. In the suit, Ms Kalembe says she went an extra mile to facilitate their introduction ceremony and make it colourful with a Shs2 million cash injectionand it is just proper that her fiancéwho had a small income then, reciprocates a good turn. In her submission to the Iganga Chief Magistrate, Ms Kalembe laments that Saturday December 17, 2011, should have been her lucky daywhen she should have walked down the aisle with her heartthrob. Instead, Ms Kalembe says, she nearly dropped dead when Pastor Kasakya of Iganga Deliverance Church, who was to preside over the function, told her Mr Mutaka had halted the wedding until further notice. Ms Kalembe told court her misery is further compounded by the fact that her house in Nkono Zone in Iganga town is where the couple had co-habited in tough times and that she had contributed Shs2 million to help her fiancé get a job.Ms Kalembes lawyer told court: Since then my client has suffered mental anguish and torture, lost chances to marry and suffered injured feelings and shame in community. The lawyer says court should compel Mr Mutaka to pay Ms Kalembe Shs20 million in costs and general damages, noting that the formers conduct was unlawful and tantamounts to breach of promise. Mr Mutaka in his defence, however, states that he is still in love with Ms Kalembe and is surprised by the suit. Chief magistrate Susan Kanyange has given the pair up to November 19 to organise a wedding or have the case resume. Woman sues fiancé over wedding*- National*|monitor.co.ug Kazi kweli kweli!
