Senator Muthama disowns wife

Agnes Kavindu is vying for the Machakos Woman rep seat on a Jubilee Party ticket.

Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama has now publicly denied any marital ties with his estranged “wife” Agnes Kavindu.

Speaking at his Tala home in Machakos County, Muthama dismissed reports that have been circulating in public concerning his marriage with Kavindu.

Muthama said he wanted to make it clear that he was indeed married to Kavindu but the two had parted ways in 1983.

The Senator said he had proof of legal documents he argues are divorce papers and thus there is nothing more that tied the two together.

“She is not my wife. We parted ways in 1983 in court but since I am a true African man who cares about the welfare of his children, I decided to get her some place to live because she was struggling with life in Nairobi,” Muthama declared.

August elections

Kavindu’s name once again came to the limelight last week after she joined President Uhuru Kenyatta led Jubilee party.

Kavindu is running for the Machakos County woman representative seat through the Jubilee party in the August elections.

She was among Jubilee Party candidates who were issued with nomination certificates in Machakos last week.

Muthama said he was unaware of whether she was being used by the Jubilee administration to embarrass him politically.

“Whatever she is engaged in now is her own private business because we are not together and I have legal documents to that effect," a defiant Muthama stated.

The senator claimed that even should Kavindu dies, she cannot be buried in his home because even the dowry his late father paid to her parents had been refunded.

“Huyu ni mwanamke mkora (this is a criminal woman). To me she is just another woman, only that she had been clinging on my name,” Muthama said.
