A company associated with A & L Hotel features in the split between Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua and his former partner Lilian Ng’ang’a. The split took a new turn on Thursday, November 4 when Lilian accompanied by her lawyer Philip Murgor accused Mutua of threats and fraud.
Lilian accuses Mutua of illegally transferring 1800 shares (45%) she held in the hotel firm, Ndash Enterprises LTD, to a third party. She was left with 200 shares. At the time of the firm’s registration in 2014, she and Mutua both held 2000 shares in the company.
“Both [fraudulent] documents have been lodged at the Companies Registry together, effectively defrauding me of 90% of my shareholding in Ndash Enterprises Ltd, a company I personally incorporated on 30/6/2014 when I held 90.9% of the shareholding. Indeed, I named the company “Ndash” after my own high school nickname,” a statement from Ms. Ng’ang’a read in part.
A & L hotel, a luxurious Machakos resort, was unveiled in 2020 when Lilian and Mutua were still together. It is named after the couple’s initials and, in numerous posts, the Governor refers to it as his “happy place”.
The couple has since broken up, and Lilian is in a relationship with rapper Juliani.
She also accuses Mutua of taking away a Toyota Harrier vehicle registered in her name since 2014. According to Lilian, Mutua arrived at her apartment parking lot in Kileleshwa, Nairobi accompanied by his police bodyguard on September 8, 2021 and used a spare key to take away the vehicle.
“Mr. Mutua proceeded to fraudulently transfer the ownership of the car in the into his name, and thereafter sold the vehicle to a third party,” a statement from Lilian read in part.
Ms. Ng’ang’a has filed two separate petitions filed before a Milimani magistrate. She wants the court’s protection from further seizure of her property or alleged harassment.
Lilian also claimed that Mutua had put her life and the lives of those close to her in danger. She noted that she had reported the matter at Kilimani Police Station.
According to Lilian, Mutua told her in a September 2021 meeting that he had received offers from people to kill persons close to her and threatened to take them up.
“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,” she alleges.
