Kampala mogul Ben Mugasha, who is popularly known as Bemguga, has all reasons to jubilate after his daughter Destiny Mugasha over the weekend introduced her Mzungu lover identified as Kirk Drew.
Moles reveal that Destiny introduced Drew to her parents at a private traditional ceremony known as Kuhirngira, which was held at their home in Mitooma district, which was attended by a few close family members and friends.
The Moles intimate that the deputy Speaker Rt. Hon. Thomas Tayebwa was the chief guest at the function and was flanked by a few bigwigs from government and the service was officiated over by the archbishop of the Church of Uganda Dr. Stephen Kazimba Mugalu.
After attending the function, Tayebwa tweeted thus; “Yesterday my wife and I joined the family of renowned investor Mr. Ben Mugasha (Bemuga) in Mutara, Mitooma to witness the Kuhingira of their daughter Destiny Mugasha to Kirk Drew. I urged the couple to love each other unconditionally and put God at the centre of their marriage.”
According to Moles, the couple has been enjoying themselves behind the scenes for quite some time until early this year when they decided to officialise their romping, which has left Bemuga jubilating.
