The campaign had run for a month, which involved African Woman’s social society nominating couples that they thought deserved a romantic gate away at Serena Hotel, Nairobi. Three couples were chosen and the stories that they shared brought tears to the eyes of those in attendance because it was clear that love was in air.
Representatives from Serena Hotels, RwandAir and African Woman awarded the three winning couples with the winners being Couple 6, Deo Kizito Mukwaya and Wuman Rwakafuuzi who will get to enjoy a fully paid trip at the Serena Hotel, Nairobi. The first runner up was couple 3, Mr & Mrs Godfrey and Emily Katamujuna who are entitled to a full course meal at The Serena Kampala’s Italian Bistro; while the second runner up was couple 1, Mr & Mrs Moses and Sarah Ogola who get a full course meal at the Explorer, still at Serena Hotel, Kampala. The nominator of the winning couple, Ndamuhakyi Sydney will also get coupons for a full dinner at Pearl of Africa Restaurant.
Mr. and Mrs. Katamujuna’s son Sydney tearfully narrated how Mrs. Emily has stood by her stroke stricken husband for over 10 years; there was barely a dry eye in the house after the emotional story. In a sudden twist of events, the couple received extra gifts from RwandAir (return air ticket to Nairobi) and free night at the Serena Hotel, Kampala.
African Woman publisher Sylvia Owori immediately requested Mrs. Emily Katamujuna to share her story as African Woman of the Month because she believed that this was a story that not only needed a bigger platform, but would resonate with many.
It was a lovely ceremony and one could truly feel that this is a season of Love.
This was all possible by African Woman in partnership with The Serena Hotels and RwandAir.
