A woman who has been married for 20 years and blessed with six children from Makutano town in West Pokot County in Kenya last week left everyone in shock after she dumped her husband and got married to the Holy Spirit.
The woman, Elizabeth Nalem exchanged wedding vows with Holy Spirit on Tuesday, May 25, in a ‘lavish’ ceremony that attracted a multitude of people at the Chelang’a Gardens.
Her husband, Joshua Nalem was said to be have been left in a quagmire not knowing what step to take next after his wife left their matrimonial home to dedicate her life to the church.
Joshua said; “She went to church one day and when she returned she started waking up at 3 am to go and pray. I asked her why she was braving the chilly weather just to pray, but instead, she decided to move out to a neighbouring homestead.”
It was gathered that Joshua tried to plead with her not to go but she refused. She told him she will come back once her “spirit husband” has granted her permission.
Her neighbour, Pastor Albert Rumaita granted her wish by officiating the peculiar wedding. He is also said to be the one who bought her the wedding gown and even ensured there was a convoy of cars to escort her on her big day.
Rumaita said; “I made the decision to preside over, plan and fund the wedding because the world might just be coming to an end and because I’m her neighbour.”
