Uganda’s ex-VP has been ashamed and his political goodwill tainted after his lawful wife put public a list of women he has been sleeping with.
In a divorce suit by his wife of over four decades accusing him of abandoning his marital obligations and engaging in adultery and infidelity which has irretrievably shuttered their marriage.
Dr Gilbert Balibaseka Bukenya- Ugandan politician and physician was Vice President of Uganda from 23 May 2003 until 23 May 2011 under the current President Yoweri Museveni.
He has been referred by his wife, Dr Margaret Mary Musoke as a prolific womaniser and an HIV/AIDs risk.
In the divorce suit filed in the Family Division of the High Court at Makindye on May 7, Dr Musoke contends that Prof Bukenya deserted their matrimonial home.
“… in the course of the marriage, the respondent (Bukenya) has deserted your petitioner (Dr Margaret Mary Musoke Bukenya) at the family/matrimonial home, engaged in endless instances of adultery and infidelity and subjected your petitioner to endless distress and abuse amounting to cruelty,” Dr Musoke states in the suit documents.
The women alleged to have slept with the embattled VP, among others, include a popular musician, Ms. Irene Namubiru, and Princess Sheila Nvanungi.
Through her lawyers of Ligomarc & Co. Advocates, Dr Margaret wants an order that she receives half the fair value of the property to which she has contributed as determined by a valuer appointed by the court.
