It was a sight that left many confused and curious. A gogo in a while dress getting married in a traditional ceremony. 

It wasn't Ganephi Bhootu's age (90) that had people shocked. It was the fact that the man she was marrying died in 1989.

Gog'Ganephi was accompanied by family and friends who took her to her marital home, singing and celebrating just like at any wedding.
