A woman from Kapenguria, West Pokot County has stunned residents after she abandoned her husband and got 'married' to the Holy Spirit.
Elizabeth Nalem, a mother of six, said the Holy Spirit led her to Pastor Albert Rumaita, who bought her a wedding gown.
Speaking during the ‘wedding’ ceremony attended by hundreds of residents on Wednesday, Nalem said she decided to leave everything behind and preach the word of God.
"Today I Bring you what you have never seen before. I searched for Him (God) and I found him, and now I have brought you the word,” she said.
"I have worked and done everything including bear children. But, God has called out to the world and people are yet to receive his word. I am one of them that has received his word and brought it to you.”
She continued: "When God planned my wedding, I did not know what it meant. The temptations I have gone through forced me back to God. I resorted to my pastors to seek clarity.”
Residents who spoke to media said they initially thought that the woman had gone mad as she would retreat to prayer at odd hours.
Nalem’s husband said he respects her decision, promising not to stand in the way of her faith.
"I am okay with it. There are no two weddings, but I am shocked. I don't understand what is happening," he said.
He divulged that they got married in a ceremony and he even paid a bride price of 22 cows to Nalem’s parents.
