- Peres Rumanzi met Claire back in 2012 during a Red Cross engagement

- He found his mystery lady and the two talked then exchanged contacts
- Months later they started dating and eventually got married seven years later
Perez Rumanzi, a Ugandan journalist who ventured into politics, became the talk of the town when a video of his wedding day surfaced on the internet.
He was immediately referred to as the dancing groom thanks to the pep he put in his step. Clad in a blue suit with a heart full of thanksgiving, the man shuffled his feet as his guests and wife cheered him on.
Perez did not let all his skills go to waste on one of the best days of his life. It was party time!
Speaking to mywedding.co.ug, the man, who walked down in the aisle in January earlier this year, said he met his wife Claire Ankwasa while on assignment.
The former journalist worked with Red Cross on a project back in 2012 when he first laid his eyes on the woman who was to be his wife.
Claire was a volunteer who worked for the organisation and her name caught the eye of Rumanzi.
“I always loved the name Claire and when I saw it, I wanted to meet the face behind it,” he said.
The two met, talked, exchanged contacts and got into a relationship later. In 2013, all roads led to Claire’s home where Rumanzi went for the formal introduction.
Seven years later, the aspiring pember of Parliament and his wife walked down the aisle and the rest, as they say, is history.
