Guests Complain Instead of being taken to a police station, the law enforcers drove all the attendees to a football stadium and made them spend the entire night in there as punishment.
The bride said the experience was humiliating and soiled what was supposed to be the most memorable day of her life.
“The pain and humiliation that I have gone through are unexplainable. You cannot make people follow COVID-19 rules by subjecting them to pain,” she said. However, Rwandan National Police Spokesperson CP John Bosco was unapologetic about the incident and said more stern actions will be taken for COVID-19 protocol violators.
