Wolf in sheep’s clothing?
Pastor and motivational speaker Robert Burale holds a record for one of the fastest divorces in Kenyan. His wife Rozinah Mwakideu left him after only one year and two days of marriage.
Rozinah has now explained what made her leave her fashion-savvy husband. During an interview with Massawe Japanni on Radio Jambo, she said she left after she discovered Burale owed several people money and was a great liar. This is shocking for a man who prides himself in being a preacher.
The scorned ex-wife said:
I would receive calls now and then from people and police saying Robert had unsettled debts. It was a character he had and I kept waiting because I thought he would change because he was born-again. For example, the main reason why I left was after my friend came to visit me and after she left she wanted to sue him. I couldn’t handle that pressure plus other personal issues
Apparently, he also kept cheating on her and apologizing. She confessed that his actions even made her become suicidal.
There were red flags that he was cheating on me but he would apologise. However he would fail and repeat it. Robert had so many things he was hiding from me in the name of being a pastor… I was expecting him to change. I became suicidal in that one year I lived with Robert because there was so much I was going through but I feared what people would say if I left. My mother is a prayerful person and that helped me.
Earlier this year, Bulare claimed that his marriage ended because he rushed to marry his wife without dating her for a long time.
He told SDE:
We courted for five months and then got married in the same year. Everybody said we were rushing it but we were in love, in hindsight, we should have listened. We dated, courted, paid dowry and got married all within five months. Her parents were okay.
