PHOTOS: Couple weds in hospital after groom’s accident days to union

Published

They say love conquers all. A Burundian couple has lived up to the adage by conducting their wedding in hospital. Charlotte Mukantwari and Gabin Ndayizigiye’s wedding plans were all finalised but days to walking down the aisle, the groom was involved in an accident.

Speaking after the wedding, the groom recalled asking himself lots of questions following the accident that left him in a wheelchair.

“After the accident, I asked myself whether the devil didn’t want me to marry. I very well knew that my wedding was set for July 4 and being an important day for us, it had to go on as planned. If we hadn’t gotten married, I would have felt like God had abandoned me,” the groom said.

Affirming her newly-wed husband’s stance, the bride said that they could not postpone the wedding hence, opted to conduct it in hospital.

“Because of my love for him, not even an accident could not make us push forward the date of our wedding,” she said.

Accident

According to Gabin, they have been dating for a long time and had vowed to live as husband and wife till death. But three days to their big day, he broke his leg after getting hit by a vehicle, rendering him unconscious.

“When I came back to, I found myself lying in a ditch with dirty water and my leg was swollen. At the hospital, they were initially hesitant to tell Charlotte what had befallen me. When she was finally informed about my accident, she promptly came to visit,” Gabin narrated.

The groom further said that the next logical plan of action was to postpone the wedding but the bride had other plans.

“Charlotte would look at me lying on the bed, look at my broken leg and encourage me saying that if God gave me reprieve, our wedding would go on as planned. Her utterances shocked me because another woman wouldn’t want to be seen next to me,” he said.

Gabin then sought the approval of the Catholic Church to conduct the wedding in hospital and the padre accepted.  The hospital management then prepared a room for the two to exchange vows and provided a wheelchair for the groom. Despite the priest hiding the exact time of the wedding to discourage crowds, their unorthodox union attracted a large crowd of onlookers keen on witnessing the triumph of love.

“Our wedding day was great. We received blessings and exchanged rings before I was wheeled back to the ward,” concluded the groom.

I have not left my wife: Ex-president Jakaya Kikwete

Published

on

Former Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete has denied allegations that he has parted way with his wife Salma. Addressing a Chama Cha Mapenduzi (CCM) rally in Arusha on September 9 ahead of the October 28 General Elections, Mr Kiwete sought to put to rest the rumours propagated on social media.

“Should I, or should I not say?” Mr Kikwete posed to the crowd which cheered him on.

“I’ve heard that people were saying that ‘this lady has been dumped and that’s why she wants to become a Member of Parliament’. Do you want to take my wife from me? I have not left her,” said a laughing Mr Kiwete.

Making history

Mama Salma, as she’s popularly referred to by Tanzanians made history in 2017 after becoming the first former first lady to become MP after being nominated by President John Magufuli. Mrs Kikwete’s nomination was, however, viewed as a move to reach out to politicians with a big influence within CCM, as they were seen to be drifting away from the president.

After Mr Kikwete stepped down in 2015 after serving 10 years as president as per the constitution limit, Mrs Kikwete vigorously campaigned for Mr Bernard Membe, a close family friend to clinch the CCM seat and succeed her husband.

Soon after clinching the seat, rumours started swirling that President Magufuli’s crackdown on tax evasion at the Port of Dar es Salaam put him at odds with the Kikwete family as firms they were in business with were under investigation.

However, Mr Kikwete and President Magufuli both dismissed the allegations as a mudslinging campaign.

Women empowerment

During her tenure as First Lady, Mama Salma was hailed for being at the forefront of empowering women. She founded the Wanawake na Maendeleo (Wama), a non-profit dealing with women empowerment. She also founded Wama Secondary School, an institution that enrols bright but disadvantaged girls.
