Alfred Mutua, Lilian Ng’ang’a property saga plays out in vetting
Appointed Minister of Foreign and Diaspora Affairs Alfred Mutua and ex-Machakos first lady Lilian Ng’ang’a’s property saga has played out during his vetting.
The hotel’s ownership which is at the center of the court case, was a subject of discussion in his vetting session.
The hotel, A & L, stands for Alfred and Lillian Hotel, both the ex-couple’s Christian name.
Questioned on whether it is his property or not by the Suna East MP Junet Mohammed, Dr. Mutua told the parliamentary committee that he was the sole owner of the hotel, which he built via a bank loan.
Mutua, who was said to be worth Sh420 million, said, “I own A and L hotel alone.”
However, Lilian claims she has shares in the hotel and accuses Mutua of falsifying the documents of ownership.
Additionally, Lilian, through her lawyer, lamented that Dr. Mutua transferred shares of the company they jointly own to a third party.
Through lawyer Philip Murgor, Ms. Nganga accuses Dr. Mutua of transferring her shares to Ndash Enterprises without her knowledge and consent.
Lilian had earlier shared documents detailing the cancellation of the transfer of her 1,800 shares to Mutua’s sister Ann Mutua from a company they co-owned when they were still lovers.
Ndash Enterprises, which is the mother company to their hotel A&L, reverted to 50/50 shareholding mid-this year following the reversal.
“Ndash Enterprises Ltd (A&L Hotel mother company) reverts to 50/50 shareholding as shown in the CR12 printed on 09.05.202,” the Registrar said.
Adding, “The current position therefore, is reflected in the attached CR 12 dates 9/5/2022 in which Governor Alfred Mutua and Ms. Lillian Ng’ang’a hold 2000 shares each, effectively making the 50% shareholders each in Ndash Enterprises Ltd and by extension A&L Hotel in Machakos.”
Lillian and Mutua have separated, and at the time, she quit her role as Machakos’s first lady and fell into the arms of musician Juliani born Julius Owino.
The couple wedded and welcomed a son whom they named Utheri.
