ANNE KANSIIME HUSBAND
Comedienne Anne Kansiime Parts Ways With Husband of Four Years Gerald Ojok. She is now howover ready to move after nasty divorce.
The reason for divorce includes cheating allegations and family pressure to sire children
according to ann Kansiime it wasn’t about finances, it was Kansiime’s lack of bearing a child or infidelity. The rumors never stopped but the comedienne has finally set the record straight.
In 2013, Gerald Ojok drove all the way to Anne Kansiime’s home in Kabale where the two were officially married in a traditional ceremony. It was a union of an Acholi man and a Mukiga woman. It was not just a marriage of two people, it was a marriage of two tribes and two separate regions.
In 2016, BigEyeUG broke the story when the first signs of a marriage break-up had begun to show. This had mainly been attributed to Kansiime’s busy career where she had been unable to find time for her man.
Nonetheless, the families spoke sense to the couple and the two got back together. But now, it seems Ojok finally gave out and the two have gone separate ways. It all started when Kansiime built her Kansiime Backpackers at Lake Bunyonyi. As such, Kansiime started spending most of her time in Kabale and less time in Kampala.
Ojok who had already complained that he was tired of eating the maid’s food everyday was now complaining of ‘long time no see’ when it came to his wife. The Kyambogo University employee would take weeks, sometimes even a month without seeing Kansiime. “The few days Kansiime would come to Kampala, she would be packing up her clothes for a gig outside the country. She was either on the plane or in Kabale,” a friend to the couple tells us.
Celbrated funny girl Anne Kansiime seems to have found a new man months after she divorced her husband of four years, Gerald Ojok, citing irreconcilable differences.
Kansiime seems to have picked up herself and is happy in a new romantic relationship with Ugandan reggae star Tukahirwa Abraham, popularly known as Skylanta.
