South Africa is one of the African countries that has been really hit hardest by this Coronavirus pandemic.

As at the time of this report, there are 1,585 confirmed cases and 9 deaths.

As such, strict measures have been put in place to curb the spread of the virus.

A 21-day strict lockdown has been declared across the country.

Social gatherings have also been banned. Gatherings with more than 100 people will no longer be allowed, while celebrations that were planned for Human Rights Day on March 21 and other days of national importance have been canceled.

Well, a South African couple has decided to hold their wedding ceremony regardless of all these rules and regulations.

To their surprise, police personnel invaded their marriage ceremony and they were arrested.

The photos were shared by South African radio presenter Catchvibe Moatshe via his Twitter page. He didn’t give details as to where precisely this took place.
