An 83-year-old virgin named Naom, finally walked down the aisle with her 90-year-old lover, Rwakaikara, who is a father of 10.
The aged couple exchanged their vows at St. James Cathedral, Kigorobya, Hoima District of Uganda.
The officiating minister, Bishop Kyamanywa, told the congregation that it is never too late when one follows the leading of God. He also thanked the couple for waiting for their special day.
Bishop Kyamanywa said the couple has challenged the young generation to also follow the way of God, stating that so far in his pastoral work, he has never wed a couple of this age and that this has been a blessing to him.
“It’s my first time since I started work as Bishop to wed an old virgin woman as Naom. This is amazing and the world will read and learn a lot about you,” he said.
Mr. Rwakaikara has 10 children and 40 grandchildren from his first (late) wife. Naom, on other hand, has never married before and was world’s oldest female virgin at age 83.
