Lawyer Apollo Nelson Makubuya’s cold nights are soon coming to an end as the Senior partner at MMAKS Advocates, one of Kampala’s top corporate law firms, is set to wed Anne Juuko, the Stanbic Bank Chief Executive.
CEO Magazine broke the story that Makubuya and Juuko got engaged last week, in a private ceremony and thereafter shared the good news with close family and friends in private social media messages.
“Dear friends, I am pleased to announce that Omumbejja Anne N. Juuko and I were engaged this last Sunday. We plan to get married this year. We thank all of you for your love and support. God bless,” Makubuya wrote.
Juuko is the first female to lead one of Uganda’s largest banks. She replaced Patrick Mweheire as the Chief Executive at Stanbic Bank in March 2020. Prior to her appointment, Juuko worked in various roles within Stanbic and the mother company, Standard Bank, as well as at Citibank in Uganda and Kenya.
Makubuya who is one of the founders of MMAKS is a senior partner in the Corporate Advisory Team at the law firm. He is an expert in corporate mergers & acquisitions, energy, mining, and natural resources; arbitration, tax & revenue law, and constitutional law.
Makubya’s first wife, the late Stella Nansikombi Makubuya unfortunately, passed away in September 2018.
