Parents have been urged to welcome their sons in -laws and give them time for preparation of Bride wealth.
This call comes after the unknown man shunned the body of his wife and the baby in Rugarama hospital just because he had not reported to his parent’s in-laws for introduction and Bride wealth
The Deceased has only been identified as Macklin. 25yrs and was a daughter of Peter Nkumba residents of Kabimbi Nyamiyaga cell, Bubare Sub County Rubanda District.
Sources revealed to our reporter indicate the deceased died when she was trying to abort at an unknown place in Kabale town.
After the conditions deteriorated, she was rushed to Kabale Regional referral Hospital where she died.
It’s alleged that Macklin had earlier divorced a man in Rubanda before she got married to an unknown man whom she has been staying with and who is predicted to be from Northern Uganda.
Addressing the mourners on Tuesday 28th at Kabimbiri Nyamiyaga cell, the Commissioner of parliament Hon Akampurira prossy Mbabazi Begumisa who doubles as the Rubanda District Woman MP urged the girls to always take their husbands at home even when the man is not yet ready to pay the bride wealth.
Akampurira said that it was absurd for the parents to find the body of their child abandoned in the hospital without being aware of the whereabouts of their son in-law.
She urged the parents to always welcome their son in-laws at home even when they have not paid the bride price.
