Judith Babirye and Paul Musoke Sebulime during their introduction ceremony.

By Our Reporter

Gospel singer and Buikwe Woman MP, Judith Babirye is divorced again. The singer’s marriage to fellow MP Paul Musoke Ssebulime has been dissolved by court.

Babirye and Sebulime were married in a traditional ceremony held in July 2018 in Bunga, Kampala.

But barely a year into their union, Sebulime filed for divorce. According to court documents, Ssebulime testified that he had not seen or heard from Babirye since 22 December 2018. In fact, he did not know of his wife’s whereabouts for seven months he waited before petitioning court.

Ssebulime also accused Babirye of denying him conjugal rights. He said that the couple had not been intimate since the second week of August 2018.

He further said that Babirye’s attitude towards his friends discouraged him from freely interacting with them for fear of upsetting her and this caused him psychological and mental torture because he was forced to live a lonely life.

The family division of the High Court, on 20 December 2019, finally annulled their marriage on grounds of cruelty. It ruled that Babirye’s actions were not a demonstration of any commitment to the success of the marriage and therefore the two could no longer stay together as husband and wife.

Judith Bairye was married to Samuel Niiwo in her first marriage, with whom they have a daughter together. They divorced in 2017.
