Wedding interrupted by ‘groom’s real wife and children’
An extremely angry woman stormed into a church with her children to demand a wedding ceremony
be stopped, because the groom was her husband. Groom Abraham Muyunda allegedly told his wife earlier
in the day he was going of town for work, but actually was going to attend his own wedding.
The drama happened at a Catholic church in Chainda in the Zambian capital of Lusaka,
which reports the Zambian Observer. Mr. Muyunda’s alleged wife, named locally as Caroline Mubita,
apparently heard about the wedding from neighbours and rushed to the church to put a stop to the proceedings.
She claimed he was with her at home that morning and told her he was going out of town on business
The dramatic video – shared widely on social media in Zambia – shows the woman approaching the alter saying:
“Father, this man here is my husband.”
The groom appears embarrassed as he folds his arms and looks to the ground with his back turned to the woman show says she’s his wife.
As people try to restrain her, she asks in confusion: “What is this?”
She then adds: “This man here is my husband. We have not divorced or quarrelled.”
He is reported to have added that she only came back when she realised that he had now become successful.
The bride’s family are reported to have been fully aware of the previous marriage and attended both their
traditional African wedding and the Catholic blessing service days later.
According to news sources, Mr Muyunda was taken to a police station but has not been charged with any crime.
The priest told guests to go on to the reception while he spoke to the man and his two wives, reports claim.
