GOD TV co-founder Wendy Alec has made an emotional live broadcast today in which she disclosed that her husband and ministry partner of over 20 years, Rory Alec, has left her for another woman.
Her comments today were made after the TV channel confirmed last week that Rory would be stepping aside as chairman and chief executive with immediate effect following an undisclosed “moral failure”.
Rory said in a statement on October 2nd: “After 20 years of service, I have had a moral failure this year. For this reason, I am stepping down. Please forgive me for the disappointment I’ve caused, but I know your eyes are on Jesus who is the author and finisher of your faith and not on me, an imperfect man.
“It is with a heavy heart that I confirm my season with GOD TV is over for now.”
In a lengthy statement broadcast live on GOD TV today, Wendy said Rory had been having an affair with a divorced woman in Austria and that he is currently staying on the farm belonging to the woman’s father in South Africa.
