Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua and Wife Lilian part ways



Lilian Nganga has ended her relationship with Machakos County Governor Alfred Mutua.

The two are said to have parted ways two months ago.

“The only constant in life is change and we must be present and aware to appreciate and embrace it. Winds of change blew my way and two months ago, I decided to end the long term relationship with Dr Alfred Mutua. We had a good run and I am forever grateful to God he brought us together. We remain friends,” Lilian said in a statement.

Governor Mutua on the other hand explained that they had begun drifting away as soon as they started living together.

The governor had left his first wife for Lilian, then a Kenya Airways damsel.

“My name is Dr Josephine Thitu. I got married to then Mr Alfred Mutua on 1st July 2OOO at Nairobi Baptist Ngong Road in a church ceremony. We are still married. And have three children, a boy aged 7 years old and twins aged 4,” Mutua first wife Dr Josephine Thutu Maundu has often maintained

Below is the full message the now single Governor Mutua shared about the breakup

There is a song by Roger Whittaker that has the line: “the first time we said hello, we started to say goodbye.”

Lillian and I have been a blessing to each other. Two months ago, we decided to slowly disengage. We are in amicable terms and remain very close as friends. We will continue to talk, meet and share ideas constantly.

Lillian has been an excellent First Lady and even though she will do some projects under the Lillian Nganga foundation, we have agreed she can continue with her county projects.

She will be a close advisor as I Govern Machakos County and run for President because I trust her sharp insight and heart. She has always been my number one fan. Our love for each other is permanent but I think at times, space and new directions are important.

I thank God for bringing Lillian into my life and the many ways we have made each other grow. We have had a laugh and at times a tear but all in all we have been a power couple and very happy. We celebrate life and are pleased that we have reached this decision in a mature, agreeable manner.

I am a happy and blessed man and we have agreed we will protect and support each other.
