Kenyan socialite Amber Ray, whose real name is Faith Makau, has ended her marriage to politician and businessman Zaheer Merlahi Jhanda.
Zaheer and Amber Ray got married in 2016, with Ray being the businessman’s second wife.
The socialite says she changed her religion from Christianity to Islam so as to facilitate her marriage to Zaheer.
And now that her union has crashed, she has reverted to Christianity, urging her followers and the media to refrain from linking her to her now-ex-husband.
Amber Ray, a mother-of-one, made the announcement on her Instagram page on Wednesday, August 29.
“It is about time I share with you this very important move in my life, which will also set some of you free because you have been waiting for this day for way too long; and I do not want to continue holding you hostage. Feel free to keep the screenshots, keep the receipts for future use,” she said on the photo-sharing platform.
“I would like to inform you that I am no longer married to Zaheer Merlahi Jhanda, and no one should link me to him or his family in whatever way. It has been great couple of years, despite the challenges that I have come across [sic], I apologise to my son and my family for all the insults they have had to bear [sic] in the past because of my decisions. Let there be peace because I have my own life to live, dreams to chase and goals to fulfill.
“This also goes to say that I am no longer a Muslim,” said Amber Ray.
The socialite, in the past, reportedly ruffled feathers with Zaheer’s first wife.
The businessman, however, stated that as a Muslim man, he had the right to marry more than one wife.
Amber Ray has been previously attacked on social media for accepting to be a second wife.
However, the socialite also said that being a second wife “is not easy.”
