The office of the town clerk in Makindye division has receded and withdrawn the registration of the customary marriage of FUFA boss Moses Magogo and Speaker of Parliament Anita Among.
According to a copy of the letter from the office of the town clerk, their marriage is invalid.
Earlier last month, Magogo and Speaker Among secretly tied the knot. Days later, photos of their ceremony made the rounds on social media.
The newlywed couple went ahead to officially register their marriage.
However, according to a letter dated August 16 from Makindye Division Urban Council addressed to the Registrar of Marriages in the Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB), the marriage was called off and deleted from the Division Customary Marriage Registrar.
“Please refer to my letter reference number MKD/KCCA/1308/06 dated August 15th, 2022 on the registration of the customary marriage of Magogo Moses Hashim and Among Anita Annet. I have discovered glaring omissions and errors occasioned to me as a consequence of duress while processing this matter. “
“The purpose of this communication is to therefore recede and withdraw the registration and to inform you that I have formally deleted the couple from the Division Customary Marriage Registrar,” the letter from Rwakabale Geoffrey, the town clerk, partly read.
We now wait to see if the pair will appeal against the ruling.
