In a rare phenomenon, a polygamous Gabonese man tied the knot with four women at the same time in a grand ceremony.
Business mogul Mesmine Abessole, aka Kether De Bonegere, married Madeleine Nguema, Prisca Nguema, Nicole Mboungou and Carene Sylvania Aboghet at once during a ceremony held in Libreville, Gabon.
The grand wedding ceremony was reportedly graced by a lot of guests.
