Round one win for Lilian Ng’ang’a as court dismisses Governor Mutua’s prayers

In Summary

  • Lilian Ng’ang’a claims the Governor forcibly dispossessed her of a car, “fully registered in my name.”
  • She also claims to have lost her 45% shareholding of the famous A&L Hotel.

Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua has been dealt a blow in a property row with his ex-partner Lilian Ng’ang’a.

This is after a Nairobi court on Tuesday dismissed his prayers to have the suit against him struck out, and have the matter transferred to Machakos Court.

While dismissing Dr. Mutua’s prayers, Nairobi Principal Magistrate E Wanjala said that it was “frivolous and lacks merit.”

“The court finds that the objections raised by Mutua are not sustainable and lacking in merit. They are dismissed in their entirety and the case will proceed on November 15 as scheduled,” ruled the magistrate.

The former Machakos County First Lady has filed two lawsuits against her former partner.

In the first lawsuit, Lilian is seeking to restrain Governor Mutua from selling a car she claims it is hers.

She accuses Governor Mutua of forcibly dispossessing the car that she bought seven years ago.

“On 8th September, Mr Mutua accompanied by his police bodyguard arrived at my apartment parking lot at Kileleshwa and without my knowledge or consent and using a spare key which had illegally been obtained, drove away my personal vehicle KBY 186G- a car which had been fully registered in my name since 2014,” she says.

Through lawyer Gachie Omwanza, Ng’ang’a has also filed a suit at Milimani Law Courts, seeking a restraining order to stop Governor Mutua from “coming close to me, accessing my home, visiting my workplace or seizing any of my property.”

In the court papers, Lilian claims Governor Mutua transferred her shares in their joint company immediately after they ended their nine-year relationship.

She claims that they established the company in 2014, and both were registered as directors and shareholders with equal shares of 2,000.

She, however, discovered in July 2021 that her shares had been transferred to a third party without her knowledge.

“There was a public spat between them and shortly thereafter, she discovered that a third party had fraudulently been enjoined in the company as a shareholder with 2,600 shares. That was more than the two of them each had and she remained with 200 shares,” says Omwanza.
