Africa/Kenya: Actress Joy Furaha is very famous for her role as Kawira on Papa Shirandula; she says it’s hard to know a celebrity’s real behaviour.
She spoke to Kikuyu Diaspora, addressing the issue of money in marriage.
The actress ended her marriage to Pastor Ephantus Wahome Safari on June 16, 2020.
The couple were very famous for acting, especially in the entertainment scene.
Ephantus was Kawira’s first love, but she said they failed to connect in real life.
“You cannot know who you deal with when you are in the entertainment industry. People can be pretenders, and money is not everything, especially when it comes to peace,” she added.”
” I left him during a pandemic because I was not at peace. While dating, there was no red flag.”
She also felt regret that she was too faithful and loyal in her relationship.
“I did not provoke things, which is why I failed. While dating him, I used to do something like come late for a date to see his reaction and how they handle anger,” she said.
Kawira, a staunch Christian, also stated she did not listen to God but was mesmerised by his dark and handsome looks.
She spent her six years in this marriage, although she said she would have left early.
She added: I regret that I would have left early so we could move on early.
We would have moved to next chapter by now,” she said.
Kawira suffered a miscarriage and lost a child during her marriage.
“I am a mother of twins babies, but before that, I had lost my first pregnancy, and I had triplets, in which I lost my one child,” she said.
“I am a mother to a boy and a girl. I would say maybe the assignment in that marriage was just to get my children.”
She advised all people troubled in marriage not to wait if it is not working.
“We called for delegation, but still, it did not work. I am yet to find out why my marriage did not work coz I still don’t understand. I don’t understand why I had to go through that yet I was a church girl.”
