Gumbura Accepts That Freedom May Never Come, Says Wives Should Re-marry


Disgraced former leader of RMG Independent End Time Message, Robert Martin Gumbura has come to terms with the fact that he may not leave prison and has asked his 21 wives not to wait for him. Gumbura is serving a 40-year sentence at Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison after being convicted of rape. Speaking to the Sunday Mail, Gumbura said,

I had hope that I would leave the prison one day but after losing several court appeals, I have to accept that freedom may never come. My life is behind these walls. This is why I have decided to let my wives re-marry instead of waiting for me. I have to spend 35 more years behind bars, that’s too much.

I don’t suspect them of cheating and have nothing against my wives. But l am imprisoned here, it’s only fair for my wives to move on if they wish to. Yes, I am still their husband but there is more to marriage, you have to be intimate as husband and wife. I should be providing for my wives as a husband, so they can’t be holding on to me because I am not there.
