- A loving couple in Burundi, Charlotte Mukantwari and Gabin Ndayizigiye, tied the knot after Gabin was involved in an accident barely a week earlier
- The wedding ceremony took place at a hospital with many locals thronging the event out of curiosity
- Gabin was in pain but had to show up for the vows and quickly be returned to his hospital bed
Charlotte Mukantwari, a beautiful lady got married to Gabin Ndayizigiye at a hospital after Gabin got involved in an accident that crippled him just days to the wedding.
The wedding took place on 4 June, 2020, barely a week after Gabin got involved in the accident on 30 June.
It is reported that the bride had been at the bedside of her fiance since the day of the motorcycle accident and insisted she would not allow the marriage ceremony to be postponed.
According to BBC, the officiating minister had also instructed Ms Mukantwari to put on casual wear, in what he expected to be a low-key event, but she showed up wearing a wedding dress at the hospital.
Although he was in pain, Gabin was able to make a brief appearance to take his marriage vows and was then rushed back to his hospital bed.
The amazing event took place in the northern city of Kirundo in Burundi, and after everything, the bride explained the motivation behind her insistence, saying:
"‘I’ve been waiting for that date, facing that challenge was like facing the devils' temptation, I couldn’t imagine my life after missing it".
Curious locals had thronged the hospital building where the ceremony was being held, to witness the ceremony.
In another interesting report by Briefly.co.za just like the Biblical story of Hannah, Githurai couple Florence Makena and her husband John Gitobu feel like they have been touched by an angel after 21 years of crying.
The two who have stuck by each other through thick and thin had all the love in the world but no children to share it with.
But God smiled at them and granted them not one, not two but three children all at once after being childless for more than two decades.
