The imminent breakup of their marriage may be the least of the problems popular mega-church pastor, Chris Oyakhilome, and his wife, Anita, are facing at the moment as the United Kingdom agency is investigating the UK branch of their church, Christ Embassy, over controversial payments.
The United Kingdom Charity Commission has launched a probe into the transfer of at least N941 million (£3.6 million) by the church to overseas entities between 2008 and 2012. In a statement on Wednesday, the Charity Commission said it has opened a statutory inquiry to investigate Christ Embassy over “a number of serious concerns relating to the use of charitable funds, in particular large connected party payments and the potential misapplication of grant funding.” According to the Charity Commission, which is the regulator of charities in England and Wales, statutory inquiries are only opened to investigate “the most serious” regulatory breaches.

Does a man's right hand reveal his FERTILITY? Men with a long ring finger have bigger testicles, study claims
How do your fingers measure up? If you’re a man, it could reveal more about you than you thought.
Researchers say that the length of a man’s index finger compared to his ring finger on his right hand is an indicator of his testicle size.
And the study claims that the digit ratio could be used to predict testicle volumes of any male.

Though not denying the growing divorce scandal surrounding him, the head pastor of Christ Embassy Church, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has threatened legal recourse against journalists publishing stories about him and his wife, Anita's divorce.The pastor, who spoke through his lawyer, Mr. Kemi Pinheiro (SAN), called the accusations of adultery a "false and malicious" attack against him and the church.
“The attention of our client, Rev. Chris Oyakhilome, and the church has been drawn to the wave of false, malicious and fabricated stories being published in the print and electronic media about his person, the church and a matrimonial cause between him and his wife," his attorney stated.
Sharply criticizing the recent coverage of the divorce proceedings, which the statement did not refute, the release claimed that publishers went so far as to fabricate claims that he had committed adultery against his wife, Anita. These contradict her claims that the leader of Christ Embassy Church had indeed been unfaithful during their "terribly degenerated" marriage, something she disclosed through counsel to Premium Times earlier Wednesday.
A poll performed in South Africa established the most beautiful people in Africa and listed them in order. The result was that Kenyans fell at the butt end of that list. The real question is, how many people actually believe this?
Three years ago, stories went up online about a list titled ‘Annual Most Beautiful People Awards’ which was reportedly held in Bloemfontein, South Africa.
The ‘awards’ neither have a website nor a Facebook page. Be that as it may, the list that they came up with honours Rwanda, Cameroon and Ethiopia respectively on the podium. At the bottom of the list is Gabon (46), Zambia (47) and last place is Kenya (48).
Now a new list seems to be trending again, despite the fact that its findings seem unusually similar to those that came about in 2011.
This makes one wonder how a subjective quality like beauty can be defined and measured. Kenyans like Lupita Nyong’o are a clear testament to the flawed nature of such a measuring instrument.
In addition, why would beauty be defined by borders? How is it that a region like east Africa would, in two adjacent countries, have the ugliest and the most beautiful women on the continent?
But, of course, people will talk and jokes will be made. But ideas of beauty are extremely sensitive and may directly impact the self-image of the individual and even a people.

However the untold story behind the divorce is what you may not have heard before. According to a member of Oyakhilome’s Christ Embassy Church at Ikotun Egbe Parish who spoke to us on the condition of anonymity, it was the cleric’s alleged unholy romance with Sinach, a female Gospel singer with the Church that crashed his marriage. “Pastor Chris’ wife had been unhappy with his rumoured affair with Sinach alongside other issues, while she was away running the affair of the Church abroad.

Why Rev. Anita Must Divorce Chris Oyakhilome - Founding Member & Her Lawyer Opens Up On Their Divorce
Since last week when the news of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and his wife’s divorce broke in the media, it has not been easy for all the parties. The wife accused her husband of “adul-tery” and the revelation went viral on the net with many respondents taking different positions. Numerous friends and admirers have been appealing to Rev. Anita to stop proceeding and consider their followers and also their two young beautiful daughters. However, when a magazine contacted Anita Oyakhilome's Lawyer, Stephen Goddard in UK, he confirmed the incident and said, he is afraid the divorce proceeding must go on.
Rev. Anita’s friend and one of the church's founding member in UK, Cyla Simpson has also taken to her to shed more light on the couple’s misunderstanding and why Rev. Anita must go ahead with the divorce. Excerpts below;
Our dear Anita: I am addressing this letter to you because I know that it is you who will hold the key to triumph over the challenges that have recently raised their ugly heads in your family and in your ministry. I am convinced that even if you don’t read this letter directly from me, some of the numerous members of Christ Embassy across the globe could read it and draw your attention to the words of an old man who is pretty much in the same calling as you and your husband are. I am writing this from my home: The Vicarage, St. Matthew’s Church of England, Stratford, E15 4JX, where my wife, Christy is the Vicar, and the co-ordinating Chaplain of Westfield, Stratford City.

The sharp girl said a Michael Kors wristwatch and a trip to Morrocco … and of course the father Christmas obliged. He also paid for her to go for a Rak adventure in Marrakech. She even requested 3rd party use of his MasterCard…thank god he didn’t fall mugu.
