Malawi deaf couple weds in style

A hearing impaired couple on Saturday tied knots amid cheers from both families during a colorful wedding ceremony at Lilongwe’s Mtima Moyera Catholic Parish.

Couple ties the knot against all odds

Middle aged Misozi Mwambo and his wife Lydia attracted applause from both family and church members as they smooched to signify their unity.

Neither the bride nor the bridegroom could hear what the priest was saying, but that made no difference.

The couple have all MSCE certificates and the husband works at Central Poultry in the capital. They both share a humble background.

But the couple has now overcome the seemingly insurmountable obstacles in their lives to claim their right to happiness.

    I’m reliably told that there was communication support for the newly wedd deaf couples so how come the journalist wrote that they did not hear what the priest said? I’m puzzled. I’m deaf and I had my wedding in 1993 and with one of my uncles around to provide communication support I was able to hear and respond to the reverand.

  2. Dedza Guy says:

    I attended the wedding it was wonderfully planned. The leading couple was immaculate. May God bless them.

  31. Mbanangwa says:

    Certificate is very relevant . It tells us that though deaf, both managed to achieve a descent education by passing MSCE. It encourages us who discriminate against such people that deafness and dumbness is not inability to education.

  39. Chinyau says:

    This story is part of forms of descrimination to disabled people.

  40. Nansani wa chingoni says:

    Mulungu apitilize kuwatsogolera ndi kuwadalitsa

  41. chimseu says:

    The author has used wrong title for this story. This is discrimination by using the couple’s disability or their challenges. They have names, titles, professionals and try to use words which will not offend the community like hearing impairment or challenges . You will not be happy to say that the tall or the short journalist has wedded at mlembi church

  42. Takalala Chisale says:

    This is sad. At least one of them should be ok to support the ither. Both handicapped? This is wrong. They shouldnt have been allowed

  62. Wailing Soul says:

    Zawadi Chlunga: The couple “all” have MSCE certificates or “both” the couple have MSCE certificates? Both and all are used differently Mr Journalist. Secondly, what is the relevance of MSCE in the story?

    1. special advisor says:

      A certificate that’s given to a couple is a marriage certificate. MSCE is awarded to an individual. So both bride and groom obtained MSCE. The importance of mentioning this achievement is that many people that can talk and hear, fail MSCE. This couple represents heroism and, love and support from family and the faith in God are central pillars. Praise be to God. Hallelujah!

  75. David Mailosi says:

    Its unrealistic to think that they will not argue because they have hearing and speaking impairment. You argue from your heart not from your mouth. Having differences in a marriage is normal

  76. Raw Nerve says:

    Marriage is indeed easier to overcome than MSCE which even prominent people like a Chair and Lucious Banda failed.

  77. mwanangu says:

    congratulations

  78. Disability is not inability well done guyz proud of you.

  99. human says:

    Nice and wish you all the best

  100. point blank says:

    The church could have arranged a sign language translater so that the couple could understand the vows clearly. It doesn’t make sense to officiate the wedding without them understanding what was happening.

  101. Pk says:

    Nyasatimes ,Are they the only couple in this world who are deaf to get married

    1. Think Tank says:

      Pk, cant you see a bigger picture? They are encouraging Malawians to emulate the couple in disregarding their handcaps and also to render help to such people. If you go in the streets BT you will find blind people married. At clock tower we used to have someone begging. He had two wives! But this couple is NOT begging. What happens outside Malawi is a fireside chatting topic. This is for real

    2. PK there might be others elsewhere but that remains as an assumption whilst this is real and we stand as witnesses.

    1. irene namasala says:

      they are mentioning certificates cos to say the truth most pple dont send deaf kids to school. but these ones were sent to school and mind you the girl passed with credits…she has 29 points. Its no mean achievement cos the deaf has so many challenges unlike us who are able to hear n see
