Tanzanian singer Ben Pol has finally confirmed filing for divorce from his wife Anerlisa Muigai, the Keroche Breweries heiress.
In a statement on Friday, Pol’s management urged his fans to allow him and Anerlisa to have some privacy as divorce proceedings continue at the primary court in Tanzania.
“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,” the statement reads.
“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.”
On her Instastories, Anerlisa also appeared to confirm the same saying, “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 my career & my peace.”
Pol, whose real name Benard Michael Paul Mnyang’anga, tied the knot with Anerlisa in a private wedding ceremony held at St Gaspar Catholic Church, Mbwezi Beach in Dar es Salaam in May 2020.
Anerlisa, who is the owner of Nero Water company, is the daughter of Keroche Breweries owners Tabitha Karanja and her husband Joseph Karanja.
