A newlywed couple and their guests were forced to spend the night in a stadium as punishment.
According to a report by BBC, Rwandese police stormed the wedding venue just moments before the wedding came to an end and arrested everyone who had attended.
They were then bundled into a police car and driven to a football stadium where they spent the night as punishment.
The bride said the experience was humiliating as it was supposed to be her most memorable day.
“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.
Rwandan National Police Spokesperson CP John Bosco warned that more stern action will be taken for those violating COVID-19 protocols.
In a separate story reported by GOTTA.news, a couple in Molo, Nakuru County left their guests upset after holding a wedding ceremony without refreshments.
According to a report aired on NTV, the couple Mary Wairimu and Amos Mburu held a church wedding with only 30 guests in attendance.
The seats were well spaced in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines with three guards on site giving no room for gate-crashing.
Drama ensued later after locals could not spot any kitchen activities, or smoke anywhere around the wedding venue sparking outrage among them.
“We are used to finding food well prepared, rice and meat, but today we are seated here hungry and we will return home in empty stomachs, everyone will eat at their homes,” one local told NTV.
