82-year-old Pastor Deya on why he had to get another younger wife: Even if you are born again, your eyes are not 

It all started with a statement form ex-Kamiti inmate Pastor Gilbert Deya, who claimed that while abroad, he had to cheat on his wife to avoid prostrate cancer.

The pastor, who has been released from prison after an year, has been doing a lot of interviews here and there about his life and career.

Speaking to Radio Jambo’s Massawe Japanni, he shocked many by saying that he has a new woman who is 55 years younger than him. The guy is 82 years.

“I am engaged. Men struggle with the eyes, and even if you are born again, your eyes can never be born again.” said the pastor. 

“I decided to get another woman here in Kenya. It is important to get a woman and avoid lust of the flesh. Here in Kenya, women are like nuts, they are so many that the government has decided even having 50 of them is okay.” 

Never Single

The pastor, whose career has been nothing but full of controversies, went on to add that he likes younger women and needed one after his two wives left.

“I can never be single. I want to marry her because she is so young and the age gap is 50 years. She’s 27 and so beautiful. We met at a church in Nairobi. That is in the line of my liking. My ex-wife was the one that decided to divorce me, and I accepted her decision.” he said. 


“I went to the UK and left my wife here in Kenya, and I stayed there for 15 years. The first five years, I tried to bear with the situation, but because of the lust of the body, I took another woman. I told elders of the church, and even my ex-wife knew about it.

“After a while, the woman asked me not to come back to Kenya unless I married her. Later on, she accused me of rape.I came to Kenyan and was charged with child trafficking. While at Kamiti, the woman ran away.”
