So, someone has decided to take polygamy to the next level.
A 50-year-old Ugandan man by the name Mohammad Ssemanda has surprised locals by marrying three women at ago. Mohammad is a food vendor at Kasenyi landing site, in Wakiso district.
Interestingly, two of the women are sisters. The brides include a 48-year-old Salmat Naluwugge, with whom the man already has five kids with, plus Jameo Nakayiza, a 27-year- old and Mastulah Namwanje aged 24 who are sisters.
Polygamist of the year.
Ssemanda explained that his wives were all okay with his poor financial status.
Being a Muslim, he is allowed to marry up to four wives o it’s no big deal. He said;
“My wives are not jealous against each other. Good enough, each has got a home and I promise to work harder and support them.”
One of the wives, Salmat Naluwugge, also spoke, saying;
“I thank our husband for marrying us all at once, a sign that he will not discriminate or sideline any of us.”
That guy deserves a medal. How do you marry three women at once? How do you even convince them? It takes a special kind of skill that not many men have. I’d love to do something like that but I don’t think I can ever pull it off.
