Enraged wife to Lilongwe-based pastor and renowned gospel musician Charles Chayang'ana is accusing her hubby of flirting around with women of his ministry and has since vowed to finish off the ministry.
The wife, Esme Chayang'ana, has meanwhile left her matrimonial house in Kawale and has since relocated to another house within the township.
A source privy to the issue said the wife is jealousy and became irked by women who used to visit the pastor for spiritual counselling.
Chayang'ana confirmed that there were some difficulties in his marriage. He, however, said the two-who have been married for almost 14 years and have three children between them-are not on separation. He said Esme just left the house temporarily.
"We are not on separation because she left the house on her own and it has now been three months since she left the house," he said.
The cleric-cum-musician said Esme has been feeling insecure and eventually started becoming jealousy of women followers of his ministry. He said the estranged wife vowed to finish off the ministry by December 31 last year.
Chayang'ana said at times Esme could just rise up and start insulting him while the church was in session.
"She even gave herself a deadline of December 31 to bring the ministry down but by the grace of God here we are," he said.
Pastor Mateyu of the same ministry corroborated Chayang'ana's version of events, adding that efforts by the church to bring the couple together have failed because the wife was uncooperative.
"Since she left the pastor we have not been able to bring her to a roundtable. I look into the matter with the view of reconciling their differences. I even engaged my wife to help us bring her back but there has been no success," he said.
Attempts to speak to Esme have proved futile since last week.
