Controversial preacher Victor Kanyari has lifted the lid on what led to his failed marriage with gospel singer Betty Bayo.
According to the self-proclaimed miracle worker, they got married when they were immature and naive. He described Betty Bayo as the best woman he has ever met.
“Betty was the best woman I have ever met but I think when we met we were both still childish, I was only 31 years,” Kanyari told Word Is.
He said they were not strong and grown enough to handle the pressures of marriage but they are now mature and able to decide what’s best for themselves.
Kanyari also denied that they divorced as a result of the television exposé that revealed he had been performing fake miracles.
“She was overcome by Pastor Kanyari’s scandalous life. Like when she wanted me to come home early, it was always a problem for me. The TV expose was not the main reason because she stood by me.”
Asked if he still loves Betty, Kanyari said, “You cannot force love to anyone. Na ukiachwa achika. I would say, if she loves me, I love her too but if she does not, then why should I force myself to her? If you are mature enough you let things unfold themselves without forcing them to happen because it could affect both of us. Love is a journey, and I loved her then but for now, I don’t know what her heart has.”
With Betty Bayo set to wed in the near future, what of Kanyari? Has he moved on?
“The time will come for me to move on and the whole world will know but for now no hurry in Africa. I will move on when I want, let me have my good time and continue serving God,” he said.
