A bride and groom along with their bridal party were detained on their wedding day for breaching Covid rules in Rwanda.
The newlyweds with their invited guests were compelled to spend the night sitting outside in an empty stadium as punishment for violating the Covid-19 restrictions.
“The party was reportedly transported directly to the stadium after police broke up the wedding which took place during the Easter weekend,” stated an online source.
According to the BBC, at least three other weddings had been stopped by Police in Kagali because they exceeded the permitted maximum number of 20 guests.
The bride told the BBC, “Spending the evening at a stadium on my wedding day is a bad memory that will never fade in my life,” adding, “Inflicting pain and shaming people like this doesn’t make us fear corona or observe measures.”
