Radio Jambo’s Joyce Gituro has opened up about how she lost her husband of many years because of a church.
Speaking on her YouTube channel with Jeridah Andayi, Joyce narrates how her ex-hubby left her, carrying everything from their house leaving her alone with their children.
Well, she says things changed when she and her religious husband changed the church they used to attend.
“The church was the main reason me and my husband parted ways. I lost my husband in church,” she said.
“My husband told me we had to leave the church where we used to worship and he took to a church that I did not believe in. When I went there I told my husband I am not comfortable with the doctrines…The church was sounding funny,” She said.
She recounting an incidence that happened when all worshippers were asked to close the door and the windows to chase away the demons.
“I remember one day the pastor said we close the windows and doors so that we could ‘Cough’ out the devil. I told my husband I am not very comfortable and went out with my kids. When I walked out the pastor did not like it and that is where the problems with my hubby began. When I talked to my hubby he reprimanded me that walking out was wrong,” she added.
She said that after that incidence she started noticing some weird behaviours in her hubby.
He would always receive scary prophecies from the pastor. She recalled one day when the love of her life took a lot of money to buy a TV for the pastor adding that at the time they had not paid for their children’s school fees.
“I called my parents-in-law. I told them that their son had joined a cult. He would disappear saying he has gone for prayers. The kids would see him and the cycle continues,” added Joyce.
Another time after, her husband came from his usual prayers and told her that the pastor had told him the kids were not his.
“I remember one time he came back from his usual prayers, he told her that the pastor said that the kids do not belong to him. My hubby got into debts. I suspect he was taking the money to this church. He got into debts to an extent that even my car was taken away,” she said.
The mother of three said that one day she was followed by the police who claimed that the car she was driving had been stolen.
“I was followed by police all the way to Royal Media. The police asked me if the car was mine and I told them yes. They told me that the car had been stolen. I was confused because I had given my hubby money to buy me the car. I later realised that he did not buy me a car but hired one and brought it to me. It was a stolen car,” she added.
Joyce says she was living in fear after that till one day when she visited her sister only to be called by her neighbours asking why she had not informed them that she was moving out.
In shock, she went back only to find her house empty.
“My hubby left us. He carried everything in the house. I have never seen a man who when he leaves packs the cooker, fridge, seats, curtains and other things in the house. I was shocked. We had our issues but I did not expect it to get to that,” she said.
Joyce admits that she is not sure whether the people were auctioneers or it was the husband who decided to carry them.
Joyce moved out with her kids and started a new life. After a while, she was informed that her husband was in jail in Uganda.
She informed his family who helped him to get out of jail.
