A family of thieves exposed  

Although the plan was never to disrupt the wedding, new evidence linking Tapiwa to her parents' money-laundering activities sparked an embarrassing scene for the bride. Before the vows could be exchanged, the Drug Enforcement Commission swooped in and arrested Isabel and the bride on charges including money laundering. Dumisani Jere never made it to his daughter's wedding as he was arrested before he could even dress for the ceremony.
