Judith Babirye Files for Divorce

By Serestino Tusingwire

The Buikwe district woman MP also gospel singer, Judith Babirye has petitioned family court seeking to dissolve her marriage with husband Samuel Niwo.

In her divorce petition filed recently, Babirye says her marriage with Niwo also the father of her only daughter has been stormy and characterized with sadness owing to what she describes as Niwo’s cruel, erratic, male-violent behavior and lack of respect to the sanctity of their marriage celebrated at Rubaga Miracle center.

Babirye accuses Niwo of being a serial adulterer and neglecting his fatherly responsibilities to the many children he fathers out of his numerous relationships.

She now wants court to relieve her of this burden and free her from this violent marriage.

She cited an incident when Niwo physically assaulted her hence forcing her to flee their marital home in November 2009.

Babirye also want court to grant her sole custody of their ten year old daughter since her father already abused the sanctity of their marriage by discussing bedroom issues with her so many girlfriends who would call her (Babirye) and insult her over the same.

The family court has not yet summoned Niwo to respond to the accusations.
