A man who became disabled few years after birth has for the first time opened up on the struggles he and his wife went through before saying I do.
Asaph Mujuni and Catherine Katusiime solemnised their marriage on February 22, 2020, at St Matthew Cathedral Kyamate in Uganda.
Speaking to My Wedding, Mujuni disclosed that their friends had advised Catherine not to marry him due to his disability.
"Because I have a disability, some people used to discourage Catherine from accepting to marry me. They instead were telling her to break up with me but fortunately, she did not listen to them," said the man.
Mujuni said he met his better half on campus back in 2017 and only made his interest in her known in 2018.
"After completing university at Bishop Stuart University in Mbarara, I went to study Bachelors of Divinity in UCU-Bishop Barham University in Kabale District. That is where I met Catherine in 2017. I did not disclose my interest in her until 2018 as I was first studying her character and praying about it," narrated the man.
According to Catherine, they had promised to get married after finishing campus and she kept praying for him.
The couple disclosed that friends and family supported them with their wedding plans and contributed KSh 176,000 (UgSh 6 million) while Mujuni only contributed KSh 58,800 (UgSh 2 million).
"Friends and relatives supported us to finance the wedding budget; they contributed Shs6 million. I only topped the budget with Shs2 million and bride price. Other friends gave us cars, tents, chairs and music systems," said the man.
