Controversial ‘man of God’ Victor Kanyari has dismissed claims by his ex-wife gospel musician Betty Bayo that he is a stingy father who provides little for his children.
“I take care of my children and pay their school fees, which is expensive,” Kanyari stated.
The pastor said he chose the best school for his children and he visits every term.
“She only provides for food, which we also help each other sometimes,” he said, adding, “It costs me Sh450,000 every term because they are in one of the best schools.”
In a past interview, Betty Bayo hinted that Kanyari is the kind of father who needs to be reminded to provide for his two kids.
“We are neither enemies nor friends, but we coordinate where it is possible. He is a stingy man who only provides little for his children.
“Don’t think he is that man you wake up and ask him for everything. He helps kidogo but I believe as a woman you are not supposed to depend fully on men, so I provide for them. With an attitude like mine, unaumia coz not all men can provide without being reminded.”
But according to Kanyari, being stingy means different things to different people.
“Every person is ‘stingy’, depending on what they can afford. Could be she wants Sh10 million and you don’t have; that is how the stinginess comes,” he said.
Asked if he has moved on like Betty Bayo, who is already engaged to be married, Kanyari said: “I don’t want to talk about if I have moved on or not, but if Betty has moved on, I don’t know, but I have nothing to tell her. Betty is not a bad woman… She is a good person.”
Does he miss her?
“She is the mother of my two kids and she will always be,” Kanyari said.
