Just weeks after publicly declaring her separation from Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua, Lilian Ng’ang’a has come out to declare that she is living in fear for her life.
The former Machakos first lady left her partner several months ago, but waited until some weeks back to make that public. She revealed that she had moved on with artist Juliani, and proceeded to share pictures of the two together.
In a press conference on Thursday morning, Lilian revealed that there is more to that separation. Unlike the public image of an amicable split, she says that Mutua wants none of that. After failing to win her back, he has embarked on a mission to finish her completely.
According to her, Mutua has fraudulently stolen property and shares of companies belonging to her, transferring or selling them to other people without her consent.
She recounts an incident on September 8th 2021, where Mutua stormed into her apartment and drover off in her car.
“On 8” September 2021, Mr. Mutua accompanied by his police bodyguard, Martin Nzinghi arrived at my apartment parking lot at Kileleshwa, Nairobi, and without my knowledge or consent and using a spare key which he had illegally obtained, drove away my personal motor vehicle KBY 186G — a car which had been fully registered in my name since 2014.
“Mr. Mutua proceeded to fraudulently transfer the ownership of the car in the log book into his name, and thereafter sold the vehicle to a 3rd party. I filed a case which is pending in court so I will not comment further on it, except to ask the purchaser to be on notice that I maintain my claim to ownership.” she notes.
She then accuses the governor of illegally transferring her 45% stake in the company that owns their A&L Hotel, to his sister.
“Along the same fraudulent conduct, Mr. Mutua recently and illegally transferred my shares in the Ndash Enterprises LTD (the hotel company) to his sister Ann Mbandi Mutua.
“Again, a clear act of fraud. At no point did I execute a transfer of my shares or otherwise transfer my 1800 shares (45%) shareholding in the company to him, let alone his sister.
“My advocates have managed to trace the transaction documents from the company registry..” she says.
On top of fraudulent transfer of property, Lilian accuses Mutua of threatening her life, and the lives of those closest to her.
She recounts a meeting at Windsor Golf Club on 22nd September, 2021, where she met Mutua alongside two mutual friends. The meeting got heated up, with the governor declaring her enemy no. 1, threatening to ‘crush her to ash’.
She says that the governor revealed that he had offers to kill persons close to her, and he was considering taking them up. That led her to file for a restraining order on October 7th.
“At a meeting at the Windsor Golf and Country Club on 22% September 2021, in the company of two mutual friends, and after the two criminal incidents, I requested him for a mature and amicable separation and reminded him that, after all, we were not married. Mr. Mutua angrily termed me as his Enemy No 1, and threatened to “crush me to ash”, as he takes away everything I have, and own.
“Indeed, this has already started as he has demanded that I refund any money he has ever given to me or made available for my use. He also threatened to harm persons close to me. He further demanded I apologize and retract the statements I’ve made on social media – regarding our breakup, which I declined.
“He stated that he had offers from people to kill persons close to me, and threatened that he might indeed take up the offers to teach some of them a lesson.
“He arrogantly stated that he was a very important and powerful person in this Country, and he can get away with anything and everything he has planned to do to me, and my friends. He added that his social media machinery is ready and waiting to “finish” me and my friends completely.
“On October 7th 2021, I filed a case in the High Court at Milimani for a restraining order because I believe my life, and those around me were in danger. Mr Mutua is fighting the Restraining Order by rubbishing my claims, and wants the case transferred to Machakos where he believes I will be too scared to step, as he can hire goons to bully and harass me, when I attend court.
“Mr. Mutua has gone to further falsely accused me of abusing drugs, and that I am being used by Governor Kibwana (who is Alfred’s Uncle) and HE Kalonzo Musyoka to bring him down politically – which is complete nonsense, as I have never interacted with the two gentlemen at a personal level,” she writes.
Lilian ends by urging Mutua to return her property, cease threatening her life and stop with his abuse of power. She also wants the Inspector General to expediate investigations.
“I am publicly requesting Mr. Mutua to immediately return my property, cease threatening my life, and those around me and stop his arrogance, wanton abuse of power, manipulation and bullying. He needs to get a life and move on.”
