A polygamous pastor, known as Seraki Kemmonye Seraki, has recently voiced his support for the practice of polygamy. In a bold statement, the Botswana-based pastor, who himself is married to two women, encourages men to embrace the idea of marrying more than one wife without fear or hesitation. According to Seraki, men should not allow apprehension to hinder them from pursuing multiple marriages.
The pastor admits that his portrayal of polygamy on social media does not reflect its true reality. He acknowledges that polygamy is far from being the idyllic and harmonious arrangement he often presents online. In fact, he reveals that his two wives frequently engage in fights and experience bouts of jealousy within the confines of their home. The pastor’s candid admission follows a question posed by one of his followers who inquired about the true nature of his seemingly rosy polygamous marriage.
“I never said polygamy is easy. I mean, I live polygamy daily, I know it’s ups and down. I am not the standard of polygamy, my failures and successes do not guarantee anything to any other person out there,” he said.
“If I fail, it does not mean you will fail. I have done so many things people told me I can’t do and aced them. We live once…if you strongly believe in something, do it. At least you would have tried.”
“Just like any family out there, we fight, and I came across a few fights! We also differ on certain issues! From simple things as naming of kids to investments! It’s a whole array of feelings! We don’t like our past, or the past! We do everything in our power to avoid the past, but this morning I realized that my past, my past with my wives have so many beautiful memories.
“Once in a while, sit alone and revisit your past with your partner, there are so many good memories over there! What is happening right now does not represent everything about you guys, at times, use your past as a spring board to love each other again! I love you Kagiso. I love you Mpho.”
