Kenya: Betty Bayo - Pastor Kanyari Is Stingy, Doesn't Provide Enough for His Children

11 October 2018

Gospel singer Betty Bayo has spilled the beans on the miserly ways of her ex-husband and father of her two children preacher Victor Kanyari.

Betty said Kanyari is the stingiest man she has ever met despite his millionaire lifestyle.

Kanyari rose to notoriety after a TV exposé on the fake miracles performed in his Salvation Healing Ministry Church.

The television series exposed the shenanigan ways he used to run the 'church'. He had assembled a team of racketeers who rehearsed false testimonies and staged "healings" in front of the congregation.

Congregants had to give out a 'seed money' of sh310 in order to receive their miracles.


At the time of the exposé, preacher Kanyari was married to popular Kikuyu gospel singer Betty Bayo and they hadd two children. They divorced shortly after and Betty has since remained single as she raises the children.

The singer revealed in a recent interview that she has been footing most of the bills without much assistance from their father.

Betty made the claim when asked if Kanyari provides child support.

"We coordinate where it's possible, he is a stingy man who only provides little for his children. I don't think he is the kind of man you wake up and ask him for everything," Betty noted.

Betty added that she doesn't miss him even one bit.

"I don't miss Kanyari. I am so occupied with life and enjoying the freedom of being single."
