Why I dumped Pastor Burale – Ex-wife speaks

By THOMAS MATIKO December 4th, 2018 2 min read

The former wife of renowned City pastor and motivational speaker Robert Burale has made sensational claims on the circumstances that led to their divorce in a bare-it-all interview.

Rozinah Mwakideu, sister to radio presenter Alex Mwakideu, accused Pastor Burale of cheating despite being a man of the cloth.

She also claims that Pastor Burale piled so much debt during their marriage, details of which he kept away from her.


The two were married for only a year before Rozinah dumped him claiming she found so many things were not adding up.

Rozinah claimed that even though they were both born-again Christians, there were so many things Burale was hiding from her which put their marriage in jeopardy.

“We were both born again but that doesn’t mean perfection. Each one of us had issues but they are certain which I wouldn’t stand. You know character is a very important thing but during that time I couldn’t stand Robert’s character.

“For instance many at times I would receive calls from police and other people complaining that Robert owed them monies and had failed to return. However the incident which made me leave was when I brought a female friend home and after two months she called telling me if my husband didn’t pay back her money she would send thugs to teach him a lesson.


“This was the kind of life I lived and I couldn’t bear it anymore,” Rozinah told radio presenter Masawe Japani in an interview.

Rozinah claims there were red flags of Burale cheating on her and she couldn’t contain the pressure

Rozinah also blamed herself for the failed marriage saying she had so many expectations from Burale because he was a man of God and thus expected the marriage would be a walk in the park.

“I think I put so much expectation in a place it didn’t deserve. I also didn’t have enough love to flourish the marriage.”
