*Popularly understood as ‘son of thunder’ Muriithi is wedded and affirmed having an extramarital romance with another woman who is currently pursuing ksh 100000 monthly upkeep
Prior to the paternity case in which a lady identified as Judy Mutave is seeking charges to have Bishop David Muriithi pay her a monthly ksh 100,000 for maintenance, the founder of House of the Grace Ministries had for a long time ran clear of controversy. The pastor, preacher, evangelist & author is possibly one of the highly educated clergymen in Kenya.

His curriculum vitae is further ornamented with a master’s and doctorate in theology & pastoral ministries from Latin America University of Theology in California.
Muriithi has been wedded to Rev Ronica and the pair has 2 children, namely Paul and Esther. The mates have been married for almost three decades. In a devoted post shared on social media platforms in 2018, the Bishop streamed his heart to his wife.
The post read:
For over 27 years, you have retained my hand through the most elevated & the deepest lows of life, stood by me by the lack & through the provision, put up with me & never ever grumbled, murmured, answered me back or had me by my tie! I stand in amazement of God’s goodness over our lives & marriage. Happy Anniversary to the Queen of my pure heart & bride of 27 years!
Muriithi established the House of Grace in mid-2002 in Nairobi with the ministry growing and giving birth to other components in Athi River, Syokimau, Mombasa, Voi, Eldoret, Rongai, Embakasi and Thika.
The clergyman is also an accomplished writer with several books, including Every Man’s Passion, The Will of God, Burden of Leadership, Born To Achieve, Brace Up For Success and Marriage Fire Rekindled.
His sharp understanding in theology has gained him a seat in various international meetings as a speaker & has also been featured on mainstream Kenyan TV platforms when ministering during Sunday services.

Parental Responsibility Suit
David Muriithi encountered himself trending across different social media platforms on allegations of violating the ‘seventh commandment’ and in the process, fathering a child out of wedlock.
It is said that Muriithi had an on again off again with a woman recognized as Judy Mutave with whom they have a two-year-old son.
Through lawyer Dunstan Omari, the woman is striving to have the court compel Muriithi to pay a monthly ksh 100000 maintenance to cater for different expenses such as rent, shopping, entertainment, food & househelp pay.
However, Muriithi proposed that he knew the woman mourned from fibroids and only told him that she was expectant when she was delivering at St. Mary’s Hospital.
“When I just called to say hello…in the procedure, she casually told me that she was at St. Mary’s Hospital Lang’ata to bear a child, which surprised me…I could not have been enthusiastic about a pregnancy that I did not know about and which was all along disguised from me,” read Muriithi’s affidavit.
In court papers filed on 24-8-2021, the asserted ‘son of thunder’ claimed that he was not a well off man as thinking and that he could only afford to pay a monthly ksh 10000 maintenance.
“It is now crystal obvious to my mind that the applicant holding had the misconceptions that I realy live a high-end life may somehow have forced herself to conceive with the exclusive aim of obtaining a slice of the perceived high-end life,” reads the proposal in part.
Muriithi has now ordered DNA tests to ascertain his relationship with the 2-year-old son in a twist on the matter. Lawyer Dunstan Omari protested the order on the grounds that it was not part of the affidavit. Nonetheless, magistrate Festus Terer asked Muriithi to file a formal proposal for the DNA test.
Muriithi also desired the media barred from reporting on the matter, claiming it could be a defamation plot by the woman to spoil his name.
However magistrate Terer refused to issue the order saying he was remaining to review orders issued from speaker Kenneth Lusaka case in a matching paternity suit.
