President Museveni's daughter, Diana Kyaremera, has confirmed the dissolution of her marriage with businessman Geoffrey Kamuntu after nearly 18 years together.

Despite her efforts to maintain privacy, Kyaremera felt compelled to address the public regarding the dissolution of her marriage, citing the need to clarify the situation for the sake of her children.

"I have tried to keep my divorce private and out of the public sphere for the sake of my children," Kyaremera stated.

"However, I feel the need to clarify now."

Accompanying her statement was the presentation of the "Decree Nisi," confirming the legal termination of her marriage, which was issued in 2022.

"As you all know, divorce is a very difficult thing, especially when there are children involved," she added, emphasising the emotional toll of the process.

While grappling with the challenges of separation, Kyaremera appealed to the public for their support during this trying time.

"I ask that the public continues to pray for my family as we move forward from this difficult time and that you will respect our privacy,"she stated.

In 2022, Diana formally applied to NIRA to drop the use of her husband's name, "Kamuntu".

She stated her preference to be known as Diana Museveni Kyaremera.

Diana, the president's youngest child, serves as the managing director of Museveni family enterprises and supervises all private ventures of the first family.

She married Kamuntu on July 24, 2004, and they have three children, two boys, and one girl. In a previous interview, Diana recounted meeting Kamuntu at her sister Natasha Karugire's home and instantly being drawn to his tall and handsome demeanor.

Diana has also pursued acting, notably portraying the First Lady in the Ugandan film "27 Guns," directed by her sister Natasha Karugire.

Kamuntu, on the other hand, owns a procurement firm specializing in consultancy services for oil exploration companies in the Albertine region, with alleged interests in the Heritage Oil Company.
