The Anglican Church of Kenya has disowned the Pastor, who presided over the wedding of a woman, Elizabeth Nalem who got married to the “Holy Spirit”.

ACK Kapenguria Bishop Samson Tuliapus said Mr Albert Rumaita, who funded and presided over the event, was a mere church member and not a bonafide pastor with powers to officiate marriages.

“We don’t support what happened because Holy Spirit things don’t happen that way. It is a shame to our parish and the entire ACK church. It was an embarrassment,” the Bishop told Nation. Africa.

The bishop also hinted at pursuing legal action against Mr Rumaita

The ceremony was held at a hotel, she claimed that she has already received her first assignment from God.

West Pokot County police commander Jackson Tumwet, whose officers had arrested Ms Nalem after a child neglect complaint made by her husband, said they had released her to the church for counselling.

“They came and counselled the woman and she went back to her home. We advised the husband to let the church handle the matter,” said the police chief.

The 41-year-old mother of six surprised locals after ditching her marriage to ‘wed’ the Holy Spirit last week.

She stunned residents of Makutano Town in West Pokot last week when she dressed in a white gown and called her friends and family to witness what she described as her marriage to the Holy Spirit.

But Mr Joshua Nalem, her husband, protested the decision, saying she had neglected him and their children.

Following her ‘wedding’, Ms Nalem said she had been directed by God to go to Uganda and the United States of America to spread the word. But she was arrested on Monday and held for six hours before being released with no charge.
