Couple Happily Signs Mortgage Documents They Don’t Understand
Kampala. — Soon-to-be newlyweds Jake Odong and Nalumansi Susan gleefully agreed to owe hundreds of millions of shillings to an international bank with unlimited legal resources, Amawulire confirmed.
“Nalumansi and I just signed our names to inscrutable legal documents with potentially severe consequences,” said Odong. “We have never been happier, This calls for some champagne!”
Odong and Nalumansi have rented an apartment together for the past five years, but they reportedly grew tired of not having responsibility for property taxes and repairs.
“Every day I drive past a local school in my area, I feel sad that I’m not directly contributing property tax for the education of my neighbours’ children,” said Odong.
The couple admitted they were intimidated by the mortgage documents, but said their fears were eased by the finely suited men along with their lawyer who steered them through the agreement process.
“The font was tiny, and most of it was in some weird language, but our lawyer, broker, and sales agent all claimed the terms looked fine,” said Nalumansi. “At least they said so as they sprinted out the door.”
