Stanbic Bank Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Anne Juuko and senior advocate Apollo Makubuya on Friday, August 26, 2022, walked down the aisle at Namirembe Cathedral in Kampala.
The private ceremony was attended by several high-profile Ugandans, close friends to the couple and family members.
This comes a week after Anne introduced Apollo to her parents in Zirobwe, Luweero District. It also comes a month after Apollo with his close family members were secretly introduced to Anne’s family in a ‘Kukyala’ ceremony. This is a traditional ceremony in which the groom’s family officially visits the bride’s family for the first time.
The duo has chosen to keep their functions very private and away from the media.
Makubuya and his best man
Makubuya is one of the founders of MMAKS and a senior partner in the Corporate Advisory Team at the law firm. He is an expert in corporate mergers & acquisitions, energy, mining and natural resources; arbitration, tax & revenue law and constitutional law. He was widowed after the loss of his first wife, Stella Nansikombi Makubuya in 2018 with whom he had three children.
Juuko is the Chief Executive of Stanbic Bank, Uganda’s largest bank by deposits, lending, income, profitability and assets with roughly about 21% market share across the board. She assumed this role in March 2020 from Standard Bank Namibia (Standard Bank is the mother bank of Stanbic), where she was the Head, of Corporate and Investment Banking.
Before returning home to run Uganda’s largest bank, she worked in various roles within Stanbic and the mother company, Standard Bank, as well as at Citibank in Uganda and Kenya.
Anne has two children with her ex-partner, Joel Lutamaguzi, who was also an employee at Stanbic Bank.
