Esther Arunga calls off her wedding, wants to blow the sax instead

This post is an improved version of an article which appeared in the Daily Nation today.


Esther Arunga leaves her family ‘to join church’

Esther Arunga, one of Kenya’s hottest television presenters is reported to have been estranged from her family and friends and is now living in a church in Runda.

The youthful presenter’s friends and a relative on Tuesday said they were afraid she could have gotten herself too deep into a church whose activities they say are suspicious.

The church - oddly called Finger of God - is said to be run by Joseph Hellon, a man described in entertainment circles as a multi-talented jazz maestro and music teacher.

The week-long separation from her friends and relatives has left them worried amid reports that she may have quit her job.

Wedding put on hold

Esther's wedding has also been put on hold.

Efforts to contact Joseph Hellon on Tuesday were unsuccessful as he was said to be unavailable at his Runda residence while calls to his mobile phone and the church’s landline went unanswered.

The Nation however managed to reach Esther Arunga on her mobile phone but she said she was fine.

According to some former members of the church, about eight more women live in the compound leased to the musician.

They claimed that in the last one year, the membership has grown from 25 to 500, making it necessary for the church to move to a more spacious premises in the last one week.

The guy does not sound Kenyan. Nigerians have been known to pull this move a couple of times. The public is hesitant to call a spade a spade for some reason.

I don't doubt the call to serve the church but I smell a rat here! Why would a high-flying TV anchor cum advocate leave her friends, family & job to play the saxophone? Couldn't she do that in her free time? When she comes to her senses, I hope she realizes her career is over...

i think people should not be insensitive - this is a mass con scheme - anyone vulnerable could be caught up - these people just need psychiatirc help - and hellon needs locking up

Just out of curiosity, who was the 'husband-to-be'? and at some point in her life she was into numerology and palm reading so now she's gone a step further? Hmm! And just for the clarity is that the same eloquent Hellon of former TPF 3?
And for what it's worth, she hasn't said nothing yet so its better no to jump to conclusions....besides she's a big girl.
