Months after rumors of their divorce surfaced, celebrated Tanzanian musician Bernard Paul Mnyang’anga aka Ben Pol has finally opened up confirming that he filled for a divorce with wife Anerlisa Muigai.
Through a statement let out by his management, the award-winning artist revealed that the whole process was underway and had not been completed, while calling for his privacy.
Pol noted that the process had already been initiated at the primary Court (Mwanzo Court in Dar es salaam) but yet to be finalized.
Ben Pol’s statement
“Ben Pol’s divorce proceedings are ongoing.
At this time, Ben Pol would like to confirm that his divorce proceedings are in progress at the primary court but have not yet been finalized.
These proceedings are a very private matter and he will not discuss any details out of respect for all parties involved.
He kindly asks that space and privacy be given to him and his family during these challenging times.
He appreciates everyone’s understanding and takes this opportunity to thank his family, his friends, and his fans for their ongoing support” reads the statement from Ben Pol.
This comes just days after the Keroche heiress had come out open after signing the papers, stating that her focus was now just on her career and peace without further association.
“I would like to make it clear that I signed Whatever was needed to be signed and I do not wish to be associated with anyone. My focus right now is Career and My peace.” Said Anerlisa.
The two love birds are planning for a divorce just eleven months after tying the knot at a private ceremony in May 2020 in the leafy suburbs of Mbezi in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, with Anerlisa currently heavily pregnant for the artist.
