Buikwe County North Member of Parliament Paul Musoke Sebulime has filed for divorce against wife and fellow legislator Judith Babirye.
Babirye is the Buikwe District Woman MP also renowned gospel singer.
The divorce case filed at Makindye based family division court will be heard next month by Justice Olive Karazarwe Mukaye.
According Divorce petition, Musoke said he does not want any ruling by court as regards marital property but rather the dissolution of the marriage on grounds that his right to have sex with Babirye has for long been violated,
“I don’t want any ruling from the honorable court of sharing anything with my ex-wife other than dissolving our marriage once and for all,” Musoke said in his petition
He also revealed that he has been denied his conjugal rights by his Babirye which is a fundamental human right of any person adding that it was high time they parted ways.
The development comes just days after Babirye giving birth to a bouncing baby boy.
The singer gave birth two weeks back in Boston, United States of America where she has been hiding.
In April 2019, Babirye abandoned Parliament and her marriage allegedly to protect herself and the unborn child.
Besides fleeing the country, reports had it that she also had intentions of hiding the baby from its father after birth, out of fear that Musoke might cause harm on her and this child.
Impeccable sources say Babirye had to dash to police several times at night to report her husband for wanting to kill her, on top of fears that she could be a victim of ritual sacrifice from the man she committed to.
To make matters worse, it was reported that even her co-wives were also posing a threat to her life too, thus making her marriage and life in Uganda almost impossible.
With all those life threatening circumstances, Babirye chose the option of saving herself and the baby by fleecing the country, to go and hide in the States.
A local media outlet, quoting sources said Babirye started living in fear she ‘could be a victim of ritual sacrifice from the man she committed to and that she has since left their matrimonial home in Naalya.”
Ssebulime was also summoned by Police to answer allegations of perpetual domestic violence and attempted poisoning.
