AllAfrica.com reported on Thursday, Cyril Ramaphosa's son is set to tie the knot, but first, the president needs to honour tradition and pay his alleged future daughter-in-law's parents dowry.

Briefly.co.za learned Andile would reportedly be marrying Bridget Rwakairu, who is also the niece of the former Ugandan prime minister and presidential candidate, Amama Mbabazi.

Allan Olingo, a reporter at The East Africa, also took to social media to share the news of Ramaphosa's expected arrival in Uganda over the weekend.

Furthermore, it appears the uncle of Andile's future bride also confirmed the South African president's trip to Uganda.

Speaking during a media briefing outside his house on Wednesday, Mbabazi told journalist Ramaphosa would be visiting the family this weekend to pay the dowry, as reported by Intelpostug.com.

However, thus far nothing has been confirmed by the presidency or Andile himself.

It's believed the lucky-lady-to-be has a post-graduate degree in Business Administration (MBA) from Beijing University of Science and Technology. According to reports, she also holds a BSC Environmental Engineering from Beijing Jiatong University.

As Briefly.co.za reported previously, Ramaphosa left South Africa on Monday night, to attend a meeting of the International Labour Organisation in Geneva.

And, if the reports about his son's marriage plans are true, the president would make a final stop in Uganda to end off his week. Now, we'll just have to wait and see whether the Ramaphosas add a new family member.
