It was graced by a select number of guests, including Deputy Speaker of Parliament Hon Thomas Tayebwa, Mbarara MP Hon Mwesigwa Rukaari, family members and friends.

Beatrice currently serves as a Research Assistant at the Opposition Democratic Party (DP).

Both she and Mao recently divorced their partners.

They reportedly started dating around 2020, when Beatrice left her husband Martin Kayanja in London to return to Uganda.

At the time, Beatrice tried unsuccessfully to contest for Kampala Lord Mayor but was disqualified by the Electoral Commission.

When reports started swirling about her and Mao being an item, the opposition party spoke out vehemently denying the allegations.

Her then-husband Kayanja launched an online campaign accusing her of promiscuity and abandoning her children to run off with Mao.

Two years later, she filed for divorce at the Kampala High Court in which she claimed irreconcilable differences with Kayanja.

Mao, on the other hand, divorced his wife of three children, Naomi Achieng Adong in 2019. They had been married for 16 years.

Justice Godfrey Namundi while dissolving the marriage, said that he had seen evidence that the marriage was “irretrievably broken down.”

It's accordingly a foregone conclusion that both parties want a divorce and their marriage cannot be redeemed," Justice Namundi ruled.
