H-Metro reports that Lisa’s relatives who had planted themselves around the venue caused a commotion when the couple was about to take their vows shouting that they had a court order from the High Court to stop the wedding.
Lisa’s mother even went as far as rushing to the pulpit to manhandle her former son-in-law. In the process, she grabbed him by his collar and tore off his bow tie. She was heard shouting, ‘Pano hapasi kuzochatwa kana asati aramba mwana wangu’, (‘There will be no wedding ceremony here today because he has not yet divorced my daughter’)
Lisa’a aunt also approached the pulpit with the couple’s two children to prove that he had another marriage. Due to the interdict, the wedding could not take place and the new bride, Melania broke in tears as she watched the drama unfolding at what was supposed to be the best moment of her life.
Drama ensued when she was barred from accessing the church compound, leading to a bitter exchange of words. Those inside the church blocked the group accompanying Ms Wanjiru from accessing the premises and she had to jump over the gate in her bid to stop the wedding. As the confrontation was taking place, the wedding was conducted hurriedly inside the church where the clergy pronounced the two as husband and wife. Ms Wanjiru queried why the wedding was conducted at ACK Jehovah Shammah and not at the Saints Prayers Fellowship situated in Ponda Mali, Nakuru where they have been members in the past year. The Saints Prayers Fellowship church Bishop Stephen Kariuki had received a letter from Ms Wanjiru’s lawyer to stop the wedding.
