Kikuyu gospel singer Regina Wangui Muthoga is being divorced by her Bishop husband Bernard Muthoga for allegedly being “adulterous, cruel and desertion of her matrimonial home for four years”.
Muthoga who is Bishop of African Independent Pentecostal Church, Kiriti Nyeri County has filed a case at Nyeri Court seeking to divorce Regina who he claims refused to love him and treat him with warmth that a husband requires.
He claims Regina of the popular “Ii Niwe Aca Tiwe” hit song is irresponsible, neglected him matrimonial needs and directed unkind and cruel words that stripped the priest his self-worth.
The two got married in 2002 and bore three children now aged 9, 15 and 19 years but since 2014 Regina left their home in Lamuria, Kieni, Nyeri County and has been living in Nairobi without an explanation.
According to the court documents efforts to reconcile them have been frustrated by the musician who is “reluctant”.
Regina was a low-profile musician until her performance at Nyeri first Governor Nderitu Gachagua burial in March 2017 that popularised her because of exposing her body and her dancing that went against the sorrowful event. Gachagua reportedly loved her hit song.
She has been silent since the divorce case was filed but on her Facebook page she posted; “When God wants to promote you, He uses your enemies. And when the devil wants to destroy you, he use your friends. If it wasn’t because of our friends our enemies wouldn’t know our secrets”.
She added; “In life we need to be more careful about friends, more than enemies. Most rats die with food in their mouths thinking someone is feeding them yet someone is killing them in form of feeding them. There are friends who help you in life so that it will be easy for them to destroy you later”.
