In this divorce case, Ms. Nagawa is seeking an order to dissolve her marriage with Mr. Lubega and the disposal of both matrimonial and business properties. She alleges that she introduced Mr. Lubega to her parents in June 1984, adhering to Kiganda customs, and that they were married on August 1, 1989, under the custom of marriage before cohabitation without having children.

Ms. Nagawa lists 31 prime properties owned by Mr. Lubega, requesting the court to order their disposal. She claims that the period she stayed with Mr. Lubega was marked by acts of cruelty, including denial of conjugal rights, economic servitude, violence, and multiple miscarriages.

Mr. Lubega, through his lawyers, denies the allegations and asserts that during the one year they lived together, they did not engage in any joint business arrangements. He argues that Ms. Nagawa made no contributions to his businesses. Mr. Lubega further narrates his previous marriage to Ms. Benita Lubega in 1994, which ended in divorce after having four children.
