And finally… apples of my eye

A Congolese man has married triplets after they proposed to him simultaneously.

The mononymic Luwizo told Afrimax English he thought he “was dreaming”.

Luwizo originally fell in love with one of the triplets, Natalie. Yet events took a strange turn when Natalie introduced her beau to her sisters, who became similarly enamoured of him.

Natalie, Nadege and Natasha all popped the question at the same time.

“When we told him he had to marry all of us, he was shocked” one of the women said. “But because he had already fallen in love with all of us, nothing could stop our plans since we were also in love with him.”

Luwizo said he was “obliged” to marry all of them “because they are triplets”.

His parents, however, disapprove of the arrangement. “My parents don’t understand what I’m doing,” he said. 

“You have to lose something in order to gain another,” he added.
