The first marriage of Vice President Maj (Rtd) Jessica Alupo Epel has reportedly failed and the country’s number two is said to be set to introduce a new man to her family in just a few days.
Alupo introduced Capt Innocent Tukashaba in 2011, and the couple were blessed with two children.
But Alupo’s marriage with Tukashaba is said to have faced a lot of trouble over the years.
According to leading tabloid Red Pepper, VP Alupo will now introduce a new man this Saturday, April 30.
The introduction, the tabloid further claims, will happen in Oigo Imomwa Village, Ongongoja Sub-county in Katakwi District.
Alupo is the Katakwi District Woman MP.
The new man who is expected to replace Tukashaba is said to be a one Peter Abeine.
Born in Kabale District’s Kamwezi area, Abeine’s parents reportedly migrated to Kyangundu in Sheema Municipality.
Abeine is said to have another home in Kiruhura District, the same district where Museveni’s country home is located.
This man is said to be just a year older than the VP, who is aged 47.
Abeine, who is said to be ready to marry the daughter of the late George William Epel and Bernadette Epel, reportedlywent to St Kaggwa High School Bushenyi for his O-Level and St Mary’s College Kisubi for his A-level education.
That he had his university education in the UK.
Abeine’s friends, according to Red Pepper, include current deputy speaker Thomas Tayebwa.
The introduction in Katakwi is reportedly expected to attract about 100 guests and that the VP has directed that it be kept a top secret.
