Popular comedian and pastor Muthee Kiengei, known for his knack for stirring controversy, has once again taken social media by storm.

Just last week, viral photos surfaced showing Muthee Kiengei and his ex-wife, Keziah wa Kariuki, coming together to celebrate their daughter Orpah Waithera’s 9th birthday.

The pictures showcased a pink-themed birthday party, and the most notable aspect was the former couple’s amicable interaction.

Keziah wa Kariuki took to social media to express her gratitude to Kiengei for his role as a good father in their lives.

The mother of one, who had divorced Kiengei a few years ago following his relationship with a new partner, surprised many with her heartfelt message of appreciation.

The birthday bash was a lavish affair, complete with a pink color scheme and joyous celebrations.

The ex-couple even fed each other cake, capturing these lovely moments on camera.

However, this display of love between Kiengei and Keziah stirred various reactions, with some speculating about the true nature of their relationship.

One social media user, George Muturi, commented:

“The eyes are speaking volumes, expressing unspoken emotions and thoughts that words may fail to capture.”

In response to the social media buzz and critics, Kiengei offered his perspective on the matter.

He emphasized the importance of managing online negativity, especially for celebrities facing criticism or dealing with mental health challenges.

“Nowadays, when you hear someone is depressed, stressed, or has ulcers… don’t take them to a hospital; just advise them to block anyone who posts things they don’t want to see on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, or Twitter… Social media is the worst virus nowadays.”

Muthee Kiengei’s unique take on addressing online negativity resonated with many, sparking a broader conversation about the impact of social media on mental health and the importance of setting boundaries.

Muthee Kiengei has two other children with his now wife, Mugure.
