One pastor’s bride left a suicide note reading: ‘bury me at Lang’ata next to dad and my brother Patrick’
By Mbatia wa Njambi
Bishops and pastors at the House of Grace drive women up the wall: One Bishop remarried, wed in church…without divorcing his first wife. That is committing bigamy and against the law! Another randy pastor’s bride attempted suicide with high blood pressure tablets. And recently, church founder, Bishop David Muriithi, admitted to a fling with Judy Mutave, his former mpango.
House of Grace is indeed, slowly descending into disgrace, with the scandal ridden Bishop Muriithi now battling child support in court even as he demands for a DNA test to ascertain paternity of the son.
It is not the first time the flashy bishop is getting into an entanglement. Before Judy, was sassy businesswoman, Diana Chebet. But the bishop and Chebet denied having an affair following a tiff when Muriithi collided with a top Jubilee aide at Chebet’s Lavington home. But he admitted knowing Chebet since “we play golf together.”
It will be interesting to see what the DNA results will reveal
Married pastors and bishops having mpangos is one issue which has dogged the church for a while with claims some prey, while praying. It will be interesting to see what the DNA results will reveal!
Then there was the case of Pastor ‘G’ (Anthony Gatonye Munene) of House of Grace Rongai. His fiancée, Becky Gitahi left a suicide note with both their photos attached in January 2017 three months to their wedding.
Becky had given him all her keys, ATM cards and car and in the suicide note, Becky Gitahi, then a hotel manager, accused Pastor ‘G’ of swindling her of cash, misusing and mentally torturing her. ‘Kindly bury me at Lang’ata next to dad and my brother Patrick’ the suicide note read in part.
Your parents are wonderful and I loved them, you have made me choose this direction of dying
Before meeting Becky at House of Grace Nairobi West where he was a guest preacher, Pastor ‘G’ was a divorced father of two. His ex-wife left him with their two kids over allegations of infidelity.
After his wife scattered, the pastor introduced three other chicks to his family. He even paid bride price for one of them, but her family refunded it after endless domestic issues.
Then came Becky, mother of one. Despite repeated warning against dating Pastor ‘G’ she decided to cohabit in between making wedding plans. That was before Becky found endless steamy texts from other women and once a handwritten love note was slipped under their door.
Most pastors are prone to personality disorders
Becky also found other women’s clothes in Pastor ‘G’s bedroom including panties but when questioned, he claimed they belonged to his niece.
Becky suggested they live apart until their wedding as colleagues would discover they were cohabiting yet House of Grace does not allow ‘living in sin.’ Becky decided to end the affair before overdosing using high blood pressure tablets and was found unconscious in bed by a visiting friend who rushed her to Nairobi West Hospital where she was later discharged on January 24.
Pastor ‘G’ later said his relationship with Becky was “done and dusted, a closed chapter. I’m done with her.” Bishop Muriithi later explained that Becky went berserk after Pastor ‘G’ ended the affair yet “a broken relationship is better than broken marriage. Anthony ended the relationship for reasons only known to him.”
Shameless bitch, you think I will accept you?…you are doomed and divorced!
It read in part: “I’ve found the lady you are dating (Becky), she is beautiful and I can see the comparison between me and her that is why you have been hiding from me”.
I know you heard about Rev Michael Muteti Musango, another pastor, formerly at the House of Grace in Athi River who in 2017 divorced Pastor Evelyne Akinyi, his wife of 20 years over allegations of infidelity.
Pastor Akinyi also claimed she found Rev Mercy Waruguru Wachira who runs the Agape Lighthouse Church in Kasarani, Nairobi, driving her hubby’s ride when he was abroad.

When she confronted him, Musango sent her text messages calling her “shameless bitch” with moral deficiency. “You think I will ever accept you back? You are doomed and divorced,” read part of the message.
Pastor Akinyi retraces the troubles in their marriage to Pastor Musango sleeping around with one Damaris Michino, a married church usher whose text messages were to the effect that Musango was a “better jogoo” besides descriptions of ‘erotic touch buttons.’
