Within two months of meeting musician, First Lady dumped Governor Alfred Mutua, like a bad habit!

Lilian Ng’ang’a, the fetching ex-wife of Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua met dreadlocked gospel musician Juliani in June this year. Two months later, she dumped the hubby like a bad habit. All that holding hands, Mutua kissing and dancing with her in public, was kaput!
“I met her around June or July na kama mwanaume, siku lala daro (I didn’t sleep in class), recalled Juliani, whose real name is Julius Owino.
The musician, who made his name singing from the slums of Dandora, initially just thought they would be friends “but if I get more than that I will thank God,” he told KTN.
Juliani was a single Baby Daddy, Lilian was searching for an exit latch-Chap! Chap!
Juliani, known for hit songs like Utawala, was single, Lilian was searching for an exit latch-Chap! Chap!. By August, the former Machakos First Lady announced, through her Instagram account, that her marriage to Mutua-who has another divorce in his armpit-had gone south and both had amicably called it quits.
But why would a woman leave fuel guzzlers, high-end fashion, meeting dignitaries, an endless battalion of handlers at her beck and call, a life on the fast lane…for a musician running a charity near the Dandora dumpsite? This was the same woman who was so feared at the Machakos County officers “if she didn’t like you, your goose was cooked” once quipped a county official.
What is it about a man whom women leave in a revolving door of blurry affairs? Put it differently; why do some men attract divorces more than others?
Mutua allegedly fled their matrimonial home in 2013, the year he was elected Machakos Governor
See, before Lilian, was Dr Josephine Thitu, Alfred Mutua’s first wife whom he wed at the Nairobi Baptist church Ngong Road on July 1, in 2000, to be precise.
A boy and twin girls later, they separated when Mutua, allegedly fled their matrimonial home in 2013, the year he was elected Machakos Governor on Maendeleo Chap Chap Party she said in her suit papers.
Dr Thitu, a pharmaceutical systems specialist, relocated to Australia where Mutua had studied for his Masters in communications-and where their divorced was settled in 2014.
Will Lilian later look back and wonder ‘what the hell was I thinking?” ‘why did I down date?
After their separation, Mutua became a loose ball and he didn’t also ‘sleep in class’ where he met Lilian, then an air hostess, now his ex-wife, eight years after he laid his eyes on the former model. Or will Lilian later look back and wonder ‘what the hell was I thinking?” ‘why did I down date?’’ or will she!?
Anyway, like politics, love abhors a vacuum and its Juliani’s turn to have a bite of the cherry. He seems to have made up his mind about settling down with Lilian piping: “I will marry when I am ready. I am still young,” said the 37 year old.
You can be giving her flowers and all she wants is sukuma wiki
Juliani has a daughter with actress Brenda Wairimu, who took a hike from their relationship, leaving him stranded like Sailor Kelly, halfway up the pole of amazement.
“You can be giving her flowers and all she wants is sukuma wiki,” the Hela hit maker said of the affair with Brenda who “takes care of stuff when I am financially down.”
