Ugandan comedienne Anne Kansiime has shared details of her previous marriage of Gerald Ojok, The comedienne says she ended up paying her bride price ,in her words “to make it easy for Ojol to marry her”
“ I accused someone of marrying me along enough for the whole world to believe it and him to believe it. Later when I realized that when you married ,it is when a man wakes up on his two feet, pays your bride price ,takes you to church and then marries you; none of that happened,” she said .Kansiime insinuated that she was naïve and blind in love.
“ I do not want to go into details .i was married but you know how you end up paying some of it for yourself. It is sad, do not look at me like that and I am now empowered woman” she added. During an interview Kansiime made it clear that she regrets that she regrets helping Ojok pay for her dowry.
Kansiime said “I am saying this for anyone at home who is in a situation that they cannot leave because of what people will think ,or if you are nearly getting married but you are tempted to contribute to that dowry. You will feel the way I am feeling” However she pointed out that she was quick to point out that she was just in love and wanted to make her ex-husband happy. Shortly after their breakup , Kansiime and Gerald had a bitter internet exchange that had both of them washing their dirty linen in public.
It was rumored that finances played a key role in their fall out. Kansiime’s inability to have a child during the four years was a major cause of their split , because of pressure from Ojok’s family to have babies. Through other sources they indicate that Kansiime preferred to stabilize her career first before getting children.Follow us in social media:
