He has divorced his first wife in 2007 and remarried in 2008 to Rosa Whitaker. Despite divorcing his first wife who is also in Ministry for over 10 years, she still uses the Archbishop’s name. In an interview with ZionFelix, Rev.
Francisca explained she can still use the name although they divorced and that is very legal but added also that, she is stuck to it because people can’t stop calling her by that name.
Archbishop Duncan-Williams and his first wife, “Rev. Francisca 2007 walked out on 26 years of marriage due to what they said were “irreconcilable differences”.
The Archbishop has since got married to Rosa Whitaker, the CEO and President of the Whitaker Group in 2008. Although he said he married his first wife consciously, he did not know anything about the making up of marriage hence feels it contributed to the collapse of his marriage since he married at age 24.
We can only Pray with him now and hope his marriage with Rosa Whitaker will not end in a divorce.
