A Kenyan pastor , Apostle Jesse Karanja of the Mizpah House of Prayer Church , on Saturday , refused to officiate Joyce Waithera and Paul Waithaka ’s wedding after he delayed the ceremony until 6 pm because of medical tests .
Waithera and her fiance, Waithaka reportedly arrived at the church on time , alongside their friends and family. They were waiting for the ceremony to progress , when they were summoned by the head of the church, Karanja , to his office where he reportedly instructed them to undergo an HIV test and return with their results , reports Kenya’s CitizenTV.

The couple did as mandated . The results of their tests were negative .
Waithera was also asked to do a pregnancy test , which came out negative .
They did the first test at 1 pm . Another followed at 4 pm .
After these tests , the Apostle asked them to do a third test, this time at a clinic of his choice . The couple obeyed , but this time the results allegedly indicated that the bride was HIV positive and that she was pregnant.
The pastor reportedly kept the couple and the guests waiting until 6 pm and only then said , he would not be able to officiate the wedding because the law does not allow weddings to be conducted past 6 pm .
The couple left in anger and vowed to get married at a later date .
