Tuesday, November 20, 2018– Former Citizen TV news anchor, Joey Muthengi, recently claimed that she’s dating footballer, McDonald Mariga, who is based in Italy.
It all started after Joey and the Kenyan midfielder featured in a commercial for a Betting firm.
Their chemistry in the advert left tongues wagging with Joey fueling speculation after she revealed that she plans to move to Italy to stay with Mariga following her shocking resignation from Citizen TV.
“Mariga is a cool person and he and I are real friends. I am very fond of him. I will be moving to Italy in January and I guess time will tell what next,” she said when asked if they were dating.
However, a close relative of Mariga has urged the media personality to cease and stop claiming that she’s dating the footballer.
The relative also disclosed that Mariga is actually set to wed his long-time fiancée and mother of his daughter, a lady by the name Kenisha, sometime next year in Spain.
“We are tired of these slay queen girls trying to break up happy homes. I met him (Mariga) on his last holiday in July with the sister Cynthia, his wife-to-be Kenisha and kid in hand.
“I can confirm state that they are not dating. Have you noticed he has not said anything or commented on the story?
“Joey should come clean about the ‘relationship’.
“Using his fame for her own personal gain is wrong.
