Dr Margaret Mary Musoke, the wife of Prof Gilbert Bukenya, has filed for divorce citing countless mistresses that took away her husband.

Mary accuses the former vice president of abandoning his marital obligations, in the divorce suit filed in the Family Division of the High Court at Makindye on May 7.

She contends that Prof Bukenya engaged in incidents of adultery and infidelity subjecting her to endless distress and abuse amounting to cruelty.

Represented by Ligomarc Advocates, Mary states that she lawfully married Prof Bukenya on September 21, 1974 at St Augustine Chapel, Makerere University.

In 1982/83, Prof Bukenya repeatedly committed adultery with Teddy Ndagire, which resulted in the birth of a son, Capt Brian Bukenya, who was working with the elite Special Forces Command [SFC] and died in November 2009.

Prof Bukenya from the late 1990s had several other extra-marital affairs with other women, among them late Stella Njuba and Margaret Kabasinguzi Nyabongo, who was his mobiliser.

In 2014, Prof Bukenya admitted paying Shs110 million to his former political mobiliser who sued him for allegedly seducing his wife.

Other women include; Jamila Nakku, popular musician Irene Namubiru and Princess Sheila Nvanungi.

“The respondent has not spent a night at the family home in Ntinda since July 2012. Before that, he would only visit briefly in October 2011 to attend mass following his release from prison. Since July 2012, he has only visited once in May 2015,” reads the lawsuit quoted by Daily Monitor.

“The respondent has for the last 10 years taken residence at another country home at Garuga, Katomi where he is known to host scandalous sensual parties, including the infamous bikini parties with young girls and city socialites, much to the embarrassment of your petitioner and her family.”

Mary says her guards as a spouse of the former vice president were later withdrawn for her inability to provide them food.

She has undergone the agony of countless HIV and STD tests and having to raise her children in a toxic environment.

Prof Bukenya, also former MP for Busiro North, is expected to file his defence against the suit within 15 days from receipt of court summons.
