Mhlanga, who stormed his secret wedding
It is almost unheard of for wedding guests to object to a
union. But at one South African ceremony, a couple had a startling interruption
– from the groom’s wife.
Ndodana Chifamba, 42, and his bride, known only as Phindile,
were preparing to exchange vows at their wedding in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, when
the pastor asked if anyone objected to their marriage. Incredibly, a woman
swiftly got to her feet and announced she was married to the groom.
As other guests looked on in amazement, Josephine Mhlanga,
46, then declared she had two children with her husband of 20 years and had
only found about his secret wedding that day.

She said Chifamba who was, by now, stammering could not
marry again while she was still alive.
Following the explosive revelation, the pastor halted the
wedding. He told the red-faced groom and his lover who apparently knew about
his wife that they could not sign the marriage certificate.
Mhlanga reportedly first discovered her husband whom she
married in 1995 was living a double life when the groom’s guilt-ridden
relatives tipped her off about his planned wedding.
‘His relatives tipped me about the wedding’ just hours
before it, she said. ‘They said he had emphasised to them that I shouldn’t know
about it,’ she added.
Chifamba was reportedly living with his wife and children at
the time of his affair with Phindile – but would go away from the family for
days at a time – something he apparently blamed his job on.
‘Whenever he visited, he would apologise for spending a lot
of time without coming home,’ Mhalnga said, adding that her husband would
reassure her that he loved her and wanted to stay with her.
Shockingly, Chifamba even slept next to Mhlanga the night
before turning up to wed his new bride.
On the day of the ceremony in the Parklands suburb, Mhlanga
arrived uninvited and listened to the music of the Zimbabwe Prisons and
Correctional Services band, which the couple had hired.
As the band performed a drum roll, the pastor then asked if
anyone objected to the union.
‘Before the pastor could even say the person should speak or
forever hold their peace, a hand shot up and Chifamba gasped in shock,’ a
witness at the wedding said.

They said the revelation was followed by ‘dead silence’. The
pastor then asked those involved to discuss the matter behind closed doors,
before the wedding was transformed into an ordinary party.
