“Father, hold on” is currently trending in Zambia after a woman disrupted a Catholic church wedding with her children to claim the groom is her husband who slept on the same bed with her the previous night.
The determined efforts of Caroline Mubita stopped her alleged husband, Abraham Muyunda from committing bigamy in Lusaka, Zambia’s capital city.
The woman says in the now-viral video that there is no issue between her and her husband and they didn’t quarrel. She said he left for his secret wedding from their home that morning and she had no idea he was remarrying.
These three children are his, she adds.
The video begins with a Catholic priest officiating the wedding of a couple when a woman’s loud voice causes a distraction.
“Father, hold on,” the woman, identified as Caroline Mubita, screams as she makes her entrance into the church wearing a face mask with a child strapped to her back.
Despite efforts to hold her back, she pushes her way to the front of the altar and starts explaining to the priest that she and her husband, Abraham Muyunda, were together in their bed only hours earlier and she’s shocked to now see him marrying another woman.
She reveals that Muyunda had informed her that he was going out of town on a job related trip when he left home that morning.
However, she was later tipped off by vigilant neighbors that her husband was about to wed another woman at a nearby church that same day, Mubita said.
She then rushed to the Catholic Church in Chainda along with their kids, to sort out the would-be bigamist.
The groom who has been identified as Muyunda, works at the head office of the Zambia Revenue Authority. Muyunda has been married to Caroline Mubita for several years and the couple share three children between them.
The video went viral only hours after it was shared online.
