It was a shattered dream for a South Africa-based man when his supposed wedding was cancelled after his fiance changed her mind and eloped to another man.
She only communicated to her fiance via WhatsApp, when he was on his way to the wedding, travelling from Cape Town.
Innocent Kuuya (29) was travelling from Cape Town for his supposed wedding to Rudo Muvhevhi (24) when he received a WhatsApp message from her advising him NOT TO COME as she was now staying with another man!
The wedding had been slated for this Saturday, 22 December, at the Assemblies of God church in Budiriro 5 and all the preparations were at an advanced stage.
Innocent revealed that he had followed all that is required under customary law. He was also abiding by the church channels and had hoped to walk the aisle with his wife, only to be shocked at the 11th hour.
"We dated since August 2009 and had followed all the required church channels. I didn't want her to elope with me but had to take her by the way of a white wedding. We have been communicating and all the preparations were at an advanced stage. Then on 9 December, I was on my way here for the wedding, to make sure that I master all the dances before the big day. I was shocked to receive a whatsapp message from her saying 'chirega kuuya ndakugara nemumwe murume.'
"I could not believe it and I proceeded here. I made efforts to contact her parents and they told me that she had disappeared from home. Everyone from her camp has been hiding information from me, imagine all the expenses. My best man had also travelled from South Africa and bought all the wedding clothes for nothing," narrated the visibly pained Innocent.
Rudo could not be contacted for comment since her whereabouts are unknown, even to her parents (at least according to their claims last night). Rudo was accused of looting because she received a lot of gifts at her kitchen party hosted ahead of the wedding. Innocent revealed that he could not withstand the humiliation and that his friends and family have been calling inquiring of the wedding plans.
