Estranged husband to NTV journalist Doreen Majala and Mwingi Central MP Dr. Gideon Mutemi Mulyungi is on the spot after his biological father opened up revealing that the MP assaulted him, knocking out four teeth, prompting him to walk naked for several kilometers in broad daylight in protest.

Mulyungi Kithonga, 84 narrated to Nation journalists how the MP descended on him with kicks and blows I the full glare of his wife and children, leaving him bleeding and losing four teeth in the process.

"I lost my front teeth when my son assaulted me in an argument. He rained kicks and blows on me until I fell to the ground in front of his mother and young siblings. One blow landed on my mouth," a sobbing Kithonga stated.

"As a parent, I stripped naked to condemn him. I wanted to remind all my children that I am their father no matter their physical strength or wealth," he added.

The frail old man revealed that his mission came to an end after neighbors convinced him to put on his clothes and go back home. Ever since the incident, things have never been the same.

"Since the assault, Mutemi (the MP) has never bothered to apologise to me or to initiate any form of reconciliation with me. I have since forgiven him but that incident is fresh in my memory and I still keep my four knocked out teeth," he confirmed.

Divorce with NTV Journalist Doreen Majala

The Mwingi Central MP has also been sued by his former wife, TV journalist Doreen Majala who claimed that the MP assaulted her as their union degenerated.

Majala narrated before Ngong magistrate Alex Ithuku how she was assaulted by the MP in February last year, before he fled from their matrimonial home.

Through a post on social media, the sassy diva confirmed that she had decided to end the relationship with divorce in progress.

Family feuds and court cases

In the latest incident pointing to the sour relations between the MP and his family, the family allege that the powerful MP is behind trumped-up charges against his younger brother

Joseph Mwangangi Mulyungi was arraigned in a Mwingi court and charged with stealing three CDF bursary cheques valued at Sh18,000.

The family now point an accusing finger at the MP, alleging that Joseph is innocent but was duped into accepting the charges so as the get his freedom but ended up earning a place in prison.

"The arrest of my son (Joseph) was instigated by his elder brother. He doesn't work at the CDF office and it is illogical to steal a bursary cheque, which can only be useful to the school it is supposed to be sent to," his father said.

The family has appealed for help, maintaining that the allegedly trumped up charges were made up by the MP so as to make a political statement to his constituents that no one is untouchable in his fight against corruption by sending his blood brother in prison.

Dr. Mulyungi also has an on-going court case in which he is accused of allegedly using offensive and inciting remarks against President Uhuru Kenyatta.

According to the charges, In October 23, 2017 at Kalundu open-air market in Kitui township, while addressing a National Super Alliance gathering, he used abusive words against President Kenyatta.

Despite being an accomplished architect and MP, the lawmaker has been a constant source of embarrassment and has turned his family into a loughing stock. So strained is the relationship that the family decided to migrate from his home to Ukasi area, on the border of Kitui and Tana River counties.

"We hoped once our brother was elected to the National Assembly things would be better but instead our family has become the laughing stock," one of his siblings asserted.
