one of the most celebrated marriages in the industry but to the
surprise of many, they separated on a messy note.
Initially, it was but at a point everything looked rosy outside but not at home. He just woke up one day and decided he didn’t want the marriage again.
I can’t say what actually
happened. I did not suspect if he was dating any woman or not because we
were the best of friends. I trusted him too. When the problem started,
I was begging him for reconciliation. I am an orphan with nobody to run
to but his family members, who also tried to intervene. At a point,
they fought with him because he stopped picking their calls, even his
pastor. Before the separation, I suggested counselling but he promised
to turn around for good. He did not. He would leave the house for some
days and would not pick my calls. He also accused me of nagging and policing him around. At a point,
he came back and told me it was lack of money that caused the problems.
As a good wife, I suggested we pray about it. He told me one day that he wanted to go and see his mother and took our only son with him (the union produced a child). I didn’t suspect anything because they usually went out together. That was the last time I saw my then two-year-old son.
Yes, it did initially because I loved him. It broke me down for
about a year but I decided one day to move on. I learnt from my mum not
to listen to what people say but maintain focus and I did.
When was that?
That was about four years ago. The boy is six years old now.
Did you take any action then?
If I let it weigh me down, he would use it as a ground to fight me in
court. I have not spoken to the boy for about a year now. I am sure that
even if he runs away with my child for 18 years, the boy will ask after
me. I am his mother. Currently, the case is in court.
Is there room for reconciliation?
I am not ready to reconcile with him.
It is going to four years since we split and I do not see anything wrong in that. Maybe because of the things he said when I sought to reconcile. I wanted reconciliation when the whole thing started
but he said it was too late. He never said what the problem was. It was
a normal hassle between couples. If he says I cannot force him into a
marriage that he is no longer interested in, why would he want to come

An apprentice was brought to me - a young man of about 15years
He had only spent 14 days with me when the incident happened.
It was a sad one indeed but it did not result into double tragedies. The day before the incident, we all left the place (the workshop) around
7pm after we had packed everything up into a common store...
