The son of Cyril Ramaphosa (South Africa president), Andile and his fiancee, Bridget Birungi reportedly had their traditional marriage ceremony known as kuhingira in Uganda this weekend.

Businesses, transport activities, and other events were interrupted in the Ugandan capital as security was heightened and some roads closed as Ramaphosa's entourage and their host President Yoweri Museveni, who also was accompanied by First Lady Janet, attended the traditional ceremony, locally referred to as enshagararano (escorting the bride).

The guest list also included political bigwigs such as Ugandan Central Bank governor Emmanuel Tumusiime Mutebire, Chief Justice Bart Katurebe, former Minister Jim Muhwezi and several high profile businessmen, including Gordon Wavamuno.

The couple is now expected to plan an elaborate wedding in South Africa later this year.
