Seraki Kemmonye Seraki, a well-known pastor from Botswana, responded on his social media platform to critics who claim that a polygamous marriage is not as glamorous as he presents it online.
Seraki, who proudly has two wives, addressed his followers on Facebook on June 1st, acknowledging that conflicts and competition are inherent in polygamous marriage. He has never portrayed it as an effortless endeavor.
Although his actions are totally contrary to what his bible says, the supposed man of God seems to know better than the writers of the bible.
In his response, he said, “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.”
“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.”
