The deeper truth about why 1 million Nakuru wedding was called off by Apostle Karanja

This past weekend Kenyans went crazy with the weddings and it seemed like everyone you knew was getting married. But for Joyce Waithera, a banker and her fiance’ Paul Waithaka that was not to be as their 1 million shilling wedding did not take place.
Early reports indicated that the officiating pastor had refused to hold wedding because of some issues he had. According to a source who is a close family member and who spoke to the Nairobian, the couple had not submitted medical reports as required by Apostle Jesse Karanja.
The source said:
The couple were putting the final touches to their wedding plans the whole of Friday and were late for a clinic appointment at a facility which closed by 8 a.m. They had to postpone the appointment to the following morning on Saturday-their wedding day- before the church service.
The couple then went ahead to have the tests done at different clinics each on there own. The results were then given to the presiding pastor by a member of the clergy. According to the source:
One of the medical reports revealed information that was unknown to the other partner, even as their marriage plans were in top gear… on the D-day. Apostle Karanja then decided that the couple should seek a second opinion at another clinic along Kenyatta Avenue.
The pastor then assigned two of his pastors to accompany the couple to one clinic so they could get the test done together. The new results contradicted the earlier results but also revealed something unexpected.
The partners were in shock. But according to the source who spoke to the Nairobian, the contradicting results made the couple believe that someone was determined to stop the wedding.
The couple were driven back to church at around 4 PM and joined Apostle Karanja in a closed-door meeting with their parents, clergy and best couple.
But the marriage would no go on as, by 6 PM, the apostle had canceled the wedding. When Joyce the bride was contacted by Nairobian after the failed wedding she said that God will fight her battles.
She also told the tabloid that she was trying to gather herself. Meanwhile, Apostle Karanja said:
Our church has a set of standards which must be adhered to in any ordination. The standards are not subject to discussion. You have to follow them to the letter.
