A man shared a photo of himself and his seven wives donned in wedding gowns on his social media platforms.
Habib Nsikonnene, a traditional healer by profession, visited each of his bride’s home for an introduction ceremony in a period of one week.
He gifted each of his parents in law a bodaboda among other gifts.
He tied the note with each of his bride in a Nikah ceremony at their respective homes.
Two of his seven wives are sisters
He then invited his friends and relatives for the final ceremony that was held in his home on Sunday.
He and his seven wives arrived in a convoy of about 35 cars and 40 motorcycles.
Two of the wives are sisters. All the seven women reside in the same house.
New found respect in his village
This decision has earned him new found respect in Namasengere Vilage in Uganda where he resides.
The area chairman, Emmanuel Owere revealed that he planned on naming a road after Mr Habib.
“When we settled here, we did not know that he would bring us fame. Our village is trending everywhere,” said Emmanuel.
“I am contemplating naming one of the roads after him,” added Emmanuel.
His rich but a people’s person
Mr Emmanuel described Habib as a hardworking man who gets along with fellow villagers.
“He is a rare man because given his status in society, he has been mingling with everyone. He is a hard worker and locals should emulate him.
Shs 80 million wedding
Habib is a traditional healer with no other source of income. According to a fellow villager, he spent 80 million Ugandan shillings which translates to KSh 3,151,743.
“He owns a fleet of cars and motorcycles and as a practicing traditional healer, he gets many clients, most of them from Kampala,” said the villager.
A 67-year-old village elder termed his wedding as historic although he did not agree with their living arrangement.
He advised Habib to build each wife a home. “I am now an old man but this wedding is historic.”
