We are used to people coming up with excuses for why they did one or two bad things but when Pastor Gilbert Deya said he cheated on his wife so as to prevent getting prostate cancer, it becomes hard to swallow.
A stonemason turned famous Christian preacher, Gilbert Deya, has gone on camera to admit to cheating on his wife while the two were apart but the pastor says he only did it to lessen his chances of getting prostate cancer.
The pastor disclosed in an interview that he was in England for 15 years and “could not be (sic) without a woman."
Indeed, Deya holds little to no regrets over his adultery because he was looking out for his health, apparently.
Below is the interview YEN.com.gh found via YouTube:

Science is however in Deya's favour even if his excuse sounds improper to anyone with traditional view on marriage.
A 2016 European urology study showed men who have intercourse frequently are less likely to develop prostate cancer.
But as Ghananguardian.com reports, Deya is not new to controversy.
He made headlines in 2018 over promise to congregants to give them miracle babies.
Now Deya distances himself from the scandal, accusing his wife Mary of the tribulations that befell them, which included being convicted of stealing kids in Mountain View Estate, Nairobi.

Deya, 66, has since been divorced from the woman he married when he was 22, and she, 14.
