CATHOLICS BLOCK PRISONER’S WEDDING

The wedding of 60-year-old Ackrowight Ncube of Gokwe and his wife Krette Kanyonganise of Mberengwa has been blocked by the Catholic Church.

The couple customarily married 15 years ago. Ncube is serving time in prison while Krette looks after their four children. Ncube was locked up in 2010 for fraud. Krette says the wedding, which should have been held at Harare Central Prison last year, could not happen after priests from her former church, the Catholic, deemed it unworkable.

Father Joseph Katerere said according to Catholic beliefs, merely tying the knot is not enough for a marriage.

“In the Bible, God instructed that a man shall leave his parents and go to live with his wife in holy matrimony, making it clear that men and women are incomplete without one another,” he said.

“They find both physical and spiritual completeness in marriage.” The priest said in a valid marriage according to the Bible in Corinthians, sexual pleasure is a pre-requisite.

Roman Catholic Secretary General Father Reki Mashayamombe said in the Catholic church, people should marry when there is a possibility of consummating the marriage.

“They should wait until the husband is released,” he said. “The marriage is already consummated by the procreation of children. What is left is ratification, which is the formal confirmation of agreement to remain as husband and wife.”

Krette, who has since decided to move to Celebration church, is however still determined, saying she will not abandon her marriage.

“I have decided to move to Celebration Church were they understand us better,” she said.

“Interpretations of scriptures differ and so do beliefs, it is the Catholic way and we cannot make them change that.”
