Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua has officially confirmed his split from long-time partner Lilian Nganga.
The couple confirmed the split on their respective social media handles.
Popularly referred to as Machakos County’s first couple, the two lovebirds, who have been together for over five years, shocked many with the news of the breakup.
” 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,” the governor wrote on his Instagram.
The governor currently serving his second term in office confirmed the news an hour after Lilian had herself informed the public on her Instagram “Winds of change blew my way and two months ago, I decided to end my 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,” she wrote.
She also announced she was stepping down as the Machakos First Lady.
“ With this I put down the Machakos First Lady cap- and what an honor it has been to be of service!,” she said “I will continue to do projects close to my heart, charity work etc through the “Lillian Nganga Foundation’ as this has always formed who l am as a person” she said.
The two did not disclose the reason for the split but remained adamant about their desire to continue to work together in the future.
“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,” the governor added in his public statement.
Governor Alfred Mutua and Lilian Nganga’s relationship became public once he took office in 2013.
The County boss was first married to Josephine Maundu with whom they have three children but later divorced after 15 years.
