A 32-year-old Ugandan woman has married herself so as to cool the pressure from parents who were demanding her to get a man and settle down.

Ms Jemimah Lulu, a university student at Oxford in the UK, organized a surprise party on August 27, 2018 at Quepasa Bar in Kampala, where she invited her close friends to witness her ‘wedding’.

On arriving at the venue, the guests got shocked after realising that there was actually no bridegroom, although, Ms Lulu was well tuned to the brides' way.

“We had been talking about this marriage pressure with my friend and she loved the idea so much that she offered to get me the wedding gown.”

“I decided, you know what, weddings seem so important here – I will marry myself.’
Over thirty people graced the wedding.
