"I Am Poor" Bishop David Muriithi Speaks After He Was Exposed by His Side Chick

House of Grace Bishop David Muriithi has accepted that he fathered a child with the woman who sued him and has even accepted to pay 10,000 Kenya shillings.

According to Bishop David Muriithi, his choice of 10,000 monthly upkeep to mpango Wa Kando was informed by the fact that he is also poor and fully depends on well-wishers for his daily survival.

House of Grace bishop David Muriithi’s extramarital affair was recently exposed by his baby mama who moved to court to sue him.

Bishop Muriithi’s baby mama was seeking Ksh 100,000 monthly allowance as child maintenance for her two-year-old son.

The plaintiff through an affidavit revealed that she met the House of Grace bishop in 2018 and entered into a romantic relationship with him that led to her giving birth to their son in January 2019.

The woman further claimed that Bishop Muriithi was happy and excited to hear that she was pregnant and was overjoyed when the son was born.

“The plaintiff avers that during her pregnancy period, the defendant was supportive and he wilfully provided for her and the unborn child,” the woman’s lawyer Danstan Omari said.

The lawyer added that Muriithi’s baby mama has single-handedly been taking care of their son without his support since he was born.

According to the affidavit, Muriithi had refused to give his support towards the maintenance of his illegitimate son because he is a bishop with no salary.

“JM (the baby mama) avers that Muriithi is a bishop of a reputable church within the Republic of Kenya who lives a high-end life and is not willing to offer his child the same kind of life which is a clear indication of discrimination on his part. The defendant has been defiant and brazen to accept responsibility and to assist her with the maintenance of the minor herein,” the lawyer argues.

She also wanted the bishop to pay fees at Kiota School, as well as Ksh.1,000 for salon, Ksh.5,000 for entertainment, Ksh.3,000 for utilities and Ksh.2,000 for her son’s toys.

The plaintiff also wants the court to order Bishop Muriithi to pay Ksh.20,000 for food and shopping, Ksh.35,000 for house rent, Ksh.11,000 for clothing and Ksh.10,000 for the house help.

It is his argument that the child has attained the age to join school and therefore the bishop should support JM with paying the child’s school fees and school related expenses among other things.

“The defendant has been defiant and brazen to accept responsibility and to assist her with the maintenance of the minor herein,” Omari claimed.

JM says the man of God does not want anything to do with the minor despite him knowing that he is the biological father of her son.

Omari says Muriithi has shown no interest in the minor and has incessantly showed no interest by failing to address the issue on how the child will be cared for and protected.

She says Muriithi being the father, has totally ignored his role as a parent and has all along left all the parental responsibilities of the minor to her.

“Muriithi has neglected his parental responsibilities least to say and has caused the minor herein to be a child in need of care and protection.” court documents state.

Omari further argues that Muriithi has responsibility over the child which he has to take up to ensure the welfare of the child is safeguarded until he is 18 years old.

Mutave now says her life is in danger after a Mercedes Benz occupied by unknown people was seen at her gate. She suspects the bishop has sent people to hurt or intimidate her.

In an audio recording sent to her lawyer Danstan Omari, Mutave was suspicious of a Mercedes because nobody came to her house which is located in Nairobi’s Kilimani area.

“They knocked severally but no one opened for them, I don’t know if it is him (Muriithi) because nobody comes to my house. I’m a little bit scared. I want to check if the CCTV at the gate is working to know who it was,” Judy Mutave said
