A furious woman stormed into a church with her children to demand a wedding ceremony be stopped – because the groom was her husband.

Groom Abraham Muyunda allegedly told his wife earlier in the day he was going of town for work, but actually was going to attend his own wedding.

The drama happened at a Catholic church in Chainda in the Zambian capital of Lusaka, reports the Zambian Observer.

Mr Muyunda’s alleged wife, named locally as Caroline Mubita, apparently heard about the wedding from neighbours and rushed to the church to put a stop to the proceedings.

She is heard saying in the footage: ‘Father, this wedding cannot go on. This man right here is my husband. I don’t know what is happening here.’

Fashion Nova accused of sexualizing kids with new clothing line: ‘Children should be allowed to be children’

The popular fast-fashion retailer Fashion Nova recently launched a kids clothing line, and some parents are not happy about it.

Nova Kids launched in late September, and the company describes it as “trendy fits for the stylish kid.” But several critics have taken to social media to say the clothing line is inappropriate for children.

At least three children have been hospitalized after their fingers were injured by a Muller fan, with one losing a finger to the fan’s blades.

The father of one three-year-old boy related how, in a busy moment just before the Sukkot festival, his son stuck his fingers between the metal mesh of the finger guard. The whirling metal blades literally sliced off his son’s finger. Then, in hospital, he met the parents of other children who had suffered similar injuries.

“This fan has stainless-steel blades and the product insert says that the mesh is especially dense for ‘maximum safety,’” one father related. “My son had to be taken to Tel Hashomer hospital and underwent an operation to reattach his finger. We found two other families there with children with injuries from Muller fans. One little boy suffered a deep cut and had
