Benson Gathungu popularly known as “Muthee Kiengei”, a Kameme FM and television host has pulled a surprise days after his former wife revealed what wrecked their marriage.
Today evening Kiengei revealed Joyceline Ngaru, his new darling and gave her a Valentine treat branded “V.I.P Couple” with a red carpet reception, ululation and romantic moments at Rainbow Ruiru Resort.
The romance display comes a week after his first wife Keziah Kariuki, a gospel musician and Kameme TV host disclosed that their marriage crumbled when Kiengei started courting Joyceline, a Kahawa West resident who is in her early twenties.
The Kiengei Live Show host has been living with Joyceline for months after they allegedly pushed Keziah out but all along the affair was known by a few until it was disclosed last week.
Close friends say Kiengei’s Facebook post was meant to announce indeed Joyceline is his new wife. Kiengei and Keziah work under same roof and share friends and fans. Those who knew they were a couple thought their marriage was a paradise.
Keziah told Kikuyu Diaspora Television it was not her wish the union ended but Kiengei brought in Joyceline. “I had to walk out. I was heartbroken and would weep live on TV” Keziah said. She said their lifestyle as celebrities prompted coldness in their marriage.
They met in Nakuru in 2009 when Keziah was a presenter at Bahasha FM. Kiengei was her fan. They fell in love and wedded in 2011.
