In a post on his social media on Wednesday, November 11, Governor Mutua said that he was able to accumulate a lot of wealth while working in Dubai.

I was able to use the monies I made there to clear all loans and buy properties, including land in Kenya. I was also able to buy equipment for my production company (did someone say Cobra Squad?) and undertake many other investment ventures,” the post read.

Before moving to Dubai, Mutua was working as a lecturer and also as a foreign correspondent in Sydney, Australia. He had a PhD and even served as a Communications Director for a massive organization.

His work got him noticed and was head-hunted to work in the United Arab Emirates.

I received an e-mail while I was on the island of Bioko in the capital city of Equatorial Guinea called Malabo, offering me a job. I was reluctant at first but a few months later, the thought of being close to home tipped the scales (plus the hefty pay package they offered),” Mutua recalled.

He was employed as an Assistant Professor of Communications and Media at Zayed University.

He embarked on making films in the Middle East region and at the same time got a lucrative consultancy job with a leading media house in Kenya.

In 2002, Mutua produced And the Desert Smiled, a film about always hoping and winning.

Later from 2005, he revived his company Golden Dreams and made Kenya’s first modern action TV series Cobra Squad which gained a huge following in the region.

He also produced other shows including Beba Beba and How to be Rich in Africa.

I had several weekly columns in newspapers in Kenya (remember Msafiri?) and was becoming reknown as a communications specialist,” he added.

It was then that Former Mwai Kibaki’s government noticed Mutua and offered him a job to be the country’s founding Government Spokesperson.
