Alfred Mutua loses multi-million shillings property after nasty divorce

Machakos Governor loses court case to ex-wife

At the center of the dispute are expansive plots spread across Machakos, Kitui and Makueni as well as palatial homes once shared by the two including one in the leafy suburbs of Westlands.

Mutua had moved to court seeking to have the property divided between them but left empty handed after Justice William Musyoka dismissed the suit and ordered him to bear costs for the suit.

The two married in 01 June 2000 and were blessed with 3 children. However, they began living separately in 2012 as their union descended on a downward spiral.


Thitu, a pharmacist by profession and based in Australia preferred to stay away from the limelight as Mutua’s public service career sky rocketed, first as a government spokesman then afterwards as the governor of Machakos county.

As things fell apart in her marriage, Thitu reportedly flew to Australia with their 3 children to take a break from “stress and a failed marriage.”

Shortly afterwards, Mutua reportedly seized the couple’s home in Grevilla Park 32 and stationed police at the gate with strict orders not to allow anyone in.

Their differences found their way to Australia with Thitu reportedly recording statement with Australian Authorities due to “Dr Mutua’s criminal behaviour in Kenya”.

“I have been hounded out of my home and country by endless intimidation, mental torture and anguish by Dr Mutua. My children and I have been subjected to intense public humiliation, lack of privacy, inadequate security and media scrutiny for two years”. Thitu disclosed.


Their union could not weather the storm and the two parted ways over irreconcilable differences on 19 August 2015 in Australia.

Mutua who was then newly elected Machakos governor found new love in Lilian Nganga who he fondly introduced as “The First Lady of Machakos”.

The decision by Justice Musyoka puts to rest a tussle over property and children that was nasty, chaotic, and messy, leaving many casualties in its wake and spanning more than 3 years.
