Benson Gathungu Kamua, popularly known as Muthee Kiengei, is a Kenyan comedian, morning show presenter and an ordained pastor. He is a bubbly fellow who makes witty jokes during his show. Many know him for his strikingly elegant looks and witty tongue.  His decision to become a man of God came as a shock to many but he maintained that he was ready to serve the Lord and that it wasn’t a joke. 


The presenter started his career as a street comedian back in 2006 and also took part in a number of Kikuyu films.

He would then rise to become a morning show presenter at Kameme FM, a popular vernacular radio station. He co-hosts the morning show Arahuka alongside Gatonye Wa Mbugua. The show is highly rated and is one of the most listened to vernacular morning shows in the country. 

Becoming a pastor

The radio personality revealed that his late mother’s dream was to see him become a pastor some day. Though she is long gone, he got to fulfill this wish when he was ordained as pastor on 25th November. He was ordained priest of the African Independent Pentecostal Churches of Africa (AIPCA) and was posted to the Gatundu Township headquarters as the parish minister.

“Please bear with my family’s decision. Thank you to my elder brother, pastor Kiarie, for respecting my mother’s wish and holding me back to service. Doing this was not easy, but right,” he said. 

His fans thought that it was another joke when he decided to become a pastor. He, however, said this was a serious matter and that he had lost many friends thanks to making this decision. After being ordained, he jokingly said the following day, that the first thing he would do is ask for the keys to the wine room.

“It was a painful experience. Sometimes I was getting ready for a TV show and I would break down. In other instances, I would be getting ready to appear before the camera, only to burst out in tears and mess my make-up,” she said. 

However, Kiengei believed that with time they began to repel each other. He also noted that they both needed to go on with their lives and that their child will never lack in both motherly and fatherly love.
