Joy turned into mourning after a newly wedded man died a day after exchanging vows with his bride. The 25-year old identified by Daily Monitor as Roy Jarius Watuulo is reported to have died after developing breathing difficulties. Roy and his bride Anitah Nabuduwa tied the knot at the Thornycroft Chapel which is located inside the Uganda Christian University (UCU) on December 5. While attending church the next day, Roy had problems breathing before collapsing. He was rushed to hospital where he died.

Speaking afterwards, the groom’s mother revealed he had recently returned to Uganda from Israel where he was studying, adding that he died of a blood clot in the left lung.
