08 September 2015, 21:31 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Residents of Kyungu village in central Uganda's district of Mukono are surprised over a marriage between a 27 year old man and 75 yr old woman.

Zautun Nakanda, who already has grand-grand children is now married to 27 year old Steven Tikubuwana and the couple is now living together in the old woman's house.

To those who were attacking the old woman for getting married to the young man fit to be her grand child she said; ''Love has no age limit.We love each other and that is what matters in marriage.''

Tikubuwana has  advised those against his marriage to the old woman to mind their business and leave them alone.

He said, ''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.
