The Late Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata Batte’s widow Dr. Hajjati Kulthum Nabunya Muzaata is set to legalize her new relationship with the love of her life, Akram Gumiziriza.
Hajjati Kulthum and Akram became household names in January 2022, when they both revealed that they were head over heels for each other, and now next on agenda is making their marriage official in a mega introduction followed by the wedding.
Speaking to theGrapevine, Hajjati Kulthum confirmed that she is set to introduce her husband to be in a mega ‘Kwanjula’ ceremony that will take place on November 25, 2022, followed by a wedding on December 18, 2022.
“Yes, it’s true that the marriage ceremonies are happening, Kwanjula is on 25th November this year then the wedding is on 18th December 2022, and only invited guests with invitation cards will attend both ceremonies,” Hajjati Kulthum told theGrapevine.
Asked where the ceremonies will take place, Hajjat Kulthum told theGrapevine that she will share the details in August or September when the dates for the functions are closer.
She further noted that marriage and her religion are very important to her that’s why Akram made a visit (Kukyala) to her ancestral home.
“I always tell women to ask men for an official marriage before even staying together,” she noted.
Despite the heavy criticism that came along when they made their relationship public, Hajjat Kulthum boldly assured haters and social media in-laws that her relationship with Akram is a perfect match that was made in heaven.
Hajjati Kulthum has one child with her late Husband Muzaata who died on December 4th, 2020 at International Hospital Kampala (IHK) where he had been admitted for several weeks.
At the time of his death, Sheikh Muzaata was a Muslim leader heading Imams in Uganda. He was also the head of Dawa in Uganda, an Arabic teacher, marriage teacher, and counsellor.
According to Hajjat Kulthum, Akram is an engineer by profession and has a technical training institute called Interlink Technical, PTY.
Asked why she chose him among the many applications that she had on her waiting list, she intimated to us that she followed the Quran guidelines listed under Chapter 4 where Allah tells Muslim women to get married for 4 reasons which Akram had all the boxes ticked.
She noted that among the qualities she looked for included, ‘’A God-fearing person (he is a Muslim), one with a good family background. All his brothers and sisters are highly educated doing good business. And some are high-profile Judges.
“He is economically stable and he is someone who is pleasant. Akram has all those qualities, so having passed the Islamic criteria I had to accept his proposal for marriage.”
