Ruth Komuntale, the Princess of Tooro Kingdom made her first public appearance in Fort Portal since she ended her marriage to Christopher Thomas.
Komuntale showed up for Christmas mass at St. John’s Cathedral together with Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru, the King of Tooro Kingdom, Queen Mother Best Kemigisa and the Tooro Kingdom Premier Dr. Steven Kaliba.
When Dr. Kaliba introduced Komuntale, the congregation erupted in thunderous applause.
Kaliba then requested Komuntale to greet the congregation, since it was her first time in Fort Portal since her marriage to Thomas ended
Komuntale stepped forward and in a speech that lasted only 11 seconds, wished the congregation Merry Christmas and thanked the people of Tooro for standing by her when her marriage ended.
After the speech, they were murmurs in the congregation, an indication that they wanted to hear more from her.
It is at the same cathedral where Komuntale tied the knot with Thomas last year at a ceremony presided over by the retired Archbishop Church of Uganda, His Grace Luke Orombi.
