Marriage break ups among Uganda’s Prosperity Gospel preachers is a real rotten fruit : Secular media ridicules Pastor Edwin Musiime’s marriage break up

Edwin Musiime and Isabella Lydia Masozera
Married: September 11, 2010 Kansanga Miracle Centre

UBC’s famous presenter, Edwin Musiime tied the knot with beautiful Isabella Masozera, an employee of Magic 100 FM, a radio station affiliated to UBC TV on a rainy Saturday, September 11.

The party came in phases, starting with a church ceremony at about 12:30pm with Pastor Godfrey Senyonjo’s energetic and touching sermon, and that very feisty Miracle Centre choir.

After the service, there was a mini party in the church gardens, call it a prelude to the main thing. The couple organised it for those of their guests that would be there for the service but wouldn’t make it to the reception. A cake was served with drinks and Angella Katatumba entertained.

The Musiimes then travelled in stately fashion in a white limousine with Benzes in tow. This eye-catching entourage was headed for Speke Resort Munyonyo and then Sheraton Hotel Kampala for pictures and afterwards Hotel Africana for the reception.

A persistent drizzle intercepted their programme; they were late for two hours. Favourably, it appeared the rain may also have delayed their guests, because it was hardly a full house by 5pm yet the invitation cards had 4pm as the reception time. At Hotel Africana poolside, the maroon, purple and white decoration shone perfectly on a cold day.

There were purple roses and white lilies, while a formal round-table setting with non-alcoholic drinks completed the picture.

At 6:30 pm, Edwin and Isabella marched in to the introductions of the MC, WBS’ Maurice Mugisha, accompanied by Indamutsa troupe. Angella Katatumba took up from the troupe and sang the couple to their seats.

Most people were entranced by the bride’s extravagant train, about five metres of flimsy cloth. The couple went for a quiet and sophisticated mood. From the start, it was slow music, played at a quiet volume.
None of that kiduula type deafening music. Mostly Gospel music and slow classic love songs. A mild rain shower came down just as the champagne was being popped and the cake was about to be cut. But it did not dampen the joy of the excited couple.

The whole entourage changed into party attire, including the flower girls. The bride changed into a fitting maroon dress that shone with sequins, while the groom had on a waist coat and a cravat with maroon print.
Speaking on behalf of UBC, Jane Kasumba was full of praises for Edwin’s meticulous character and Isabella’s beauty. The best man, Hudson Katumba, told the couple that marriage was like a honeycomb they could suck at forever.

Pastor Martin Ssuuna compared marriage to a good shoe one becomes more attached to as it gets older.
The groom’s aunt, Margaret Mugisha, congratulated him for getting a gorgeous wife, while the honorary consular of Pakistan and a friend to Isabella’s family, Bonny Katatumba, was happy Isabella was married to such a good, respectful and disciplined man.

When the rain stopped, a buffet was served and later, the couple cut the cake.
“I feel stronger, happier and heavier,” the groom confessed in his speech. Then promised Isabella’s mother that he would be her anchor and everything her deceased father hoped she would have in a husband.
