A businessman from Juja Farm is crying foul after his wife of 26 years dumped him for a man who has been his pastor for the last two decades.
John Kanyua said his wife Leah Wambui ditched him for the pastor who heads Joy Springs church under unclear circumstances.
According to the pastor’s wife, trouble started when the pastor, who she has married for the last 24 years, decided to appoint Wambui as his assistant.
“I strongly objected the appointment, but he was determined to have his way. I confronted Leah and threatened her not to play games with my husband. She looked innocent, and I gave in,” said Agnes Wangivi, the pastor’s wife of 34 years and mother of three.
Slowly, their friendship blossomed and he could invite her for family dinners though in the absence of her husband.
“This is when I started questioning their friendship. I confronted Kanyua to keep his wife away from my husband, but he seemed blindfolded. My husband developed cold feet on his family and ran away to Leah in 2015,” she added.
Kanyua says that it got out of hand as the Bishop would visit his house in the morning and would spend the entire day locked with his wife inside the house until he sought interventions from the local administration and members of the clergy.
“This fueled the issue further as the pastor later ran away with my wife and children and rented a house in a nearby market where they live,” he said.
Despite the predicaments, Kanyua still pays school fees for his children and from his kiosk, sends foodstuffs to their children where they live with the pastor.
“This is unacceptable and I wouldn’t sit back and watch someone take my family. If the government does not intervene, I will choose my ways. It has taken me a lot to grow the family all those years. I will not allow the wedding to continue. I can also seek legal redress. Let her stop soiling her name and ask for forgiveness, then I will take her back,” said Kanyua.Open Opera News to see comments
