Finding love during Africa's visit
The lovebirds met at a friend's introduction party in Namakwekwe, Mbale, eastern Uganda.
“A friend of mine had requested me to come to Uganda to be part of her wedding party,” Gemma who was visiting Africa for the first time said as reported by Monitor.
Mafabi attended the party as a video editor and photographer not knowing he would meet the love of his life.
That's your wife
Both said they were praying for spouses not knowing it would be the day they would meet their soul mate.
"I remember I entered a room full of ladies fixing their hair. Immediately, my eyes spotted her. In my heart something told me, ‘that’s your wife’. Deep down, I was confident that she was surely going to be my wife one day. I was always praying to God for a white wife and indeed God did answer my prayer," Mafabi said.
Spending quality time together
It was from that time they had a little chat as the party went on, and Mafabi gave Gemma his number behind a speaker.
“After meeting her at the function, we spent the evening together. We would then drive to Kampala the next day and before she flew out (to the United Kingdom) on the fourth day, I surprised her with a marriage proposal and she said yes,” he recalled.
Three months later, they started preparing for their wedding which happened on December 16, 2022.
