There was drama in Busati village in Sironko District in Uganda at the weekend after two close friends and business partners swapped wives to settle a long standing extra marital affair.
The duo, Mr Steven Wesonga and Mr David Woisi agreed at the weekend, (June 11) in a village meeting with residents to exchange their wives at a public gala.
They have reportedly been engaging in extramarital affair with one another’s wife for long time.
Mr Wesonga took on Ms Sarah Muduwa, a wife to Mr Woisi. Mr Woisi in return married Mr Wesonga’s wife, Ms Annette Namataka.
Mr Wesonga had five children with his former wife while Mr Woisi had two children from his wife.
Ms Rose Manayanya, the women councillor representing Busati parish in Bukise Sub County, said the two made a right decision to follow their hearts instead of pretending.
“They agreed amicably and we have supported their decision,” he said.
Mr Wesonga during the impromptu introduction ceremony told Daily Monitor that he was happy about the whole arrangement.
“I am happy now. I also wish my colleague success with his new wife, who has been my wife,” he said.
Mr Woisi also said he was okay with the arrangement but expressed reservation why his colleague was too excited.
Mr Ayub Magombe, a resident, however, termed it as the highest form of immorality, which he said is unacceptable.
“It’s morally wrong to exchange women. Its sets a wrong precedent for the new generation,” he said.
