Andile is Ramaphosa's first son, and his mother is Hope Ramaphosa, the woman that Ramaphosa married for 11 years. Andile is 40 years old as of 2021. He married the daughter(although some sources say niece) of Ugandan former prime Minister, Amama Mbabazi. Her name is Bridget Birungi Rwakairu. It sounds like something that was arranged, that President son should marry from a decent family, however that is not the case.
They met in Beijing, China, 10 years prior their wedding. Andile was doing business there while Bridget was busy with her undergraduate studies . When they got married in 2018 they already had a child named Ainebyona.
Their wedding was attended by high profile officials including the president of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni. Hope Ramaphosa was also there to witness the wedding ceremony of her son.
