What you need to know:

Love doesn’t ask why. On Friday, August 20, Guvnor Ace (Ronald Ssemawele) and his bride, Mona-Lisa Larsson, had more than their fair share of attention when pictures of their civil wedding hit social media. Interracial marriages are commonplace nowadays, but, there are some who still stigmatise the Black half of the couple, imagining they are into the marriage for money. In Ssemawele’s case, society was ‘scandalised’ by the bride’s age, with many saying Guvnor married the love of his life for money. Gillian Nantume caught up with the lovebirds at their rented cottages in Lubowa as they enjoyed a cold beer.
