Emmanuel Lwasa is becoming a household name, in good or bad terms, depending on how one perceives his behavior.
He has had many concubines from singers, the little known, Television and Radio presenters. Some of these have included Desire Luzinda, Zahara Toto, BBS presenter Diana Nabatanzi and now.
Until last year, he had a stable family and stayed with his official wife (name withheld) at his Bulaga-Bbira home.
Lwasa had been with this wife for a while until a time when she got disgusted and fled the country to Canada when she could no longer bear with the rampant media reports of how his husband womanized.
Lwasa and this Rwandese woman had had children.
Being the official wife, Lwasa had ensured that this lady, had the best care.
For many years, she managed the biggest hardware at Bulaga (Kumwenda) along Mityana road.
