”I wonder why some people who poke their noses in issues that do not concern them. Why are they concerned about my marrying an old woman of my choice?” He said that when he lost his job and had nowhere to stay, the old woman welcomed him to her house and some how they fell in love and are now husband and wife. An elder on the village, Vincent Kalule said, ”I wonder whether that young man is in his senses. How can a 27 year old man marry a 70 yr old woman. What kind of marriage is that,” he posed.
