Life in the Family

Muthee Kiengei eventually married his now-beautiful wife Joyceline Ngaru.
Kiengei married his first wife, Keziah Kariuki, in a church wedding, but the couple separated over time. Keziah also works as a presenter for a vernacular station, and in a previous interview, she revealed how her husband's marriage to another woman deeply hurt her, despite her efforts to conceal it.
