"I fell from a horse and it nearly killed me. I was preparing for East Africa Music awards my company had put together,” he said.

This resulted in the Governor’s decision never to ride a horse in his life ever again. 

The second near-death incident was when he was a little boy living in Kibra. A playful Mutua built a go-kart which together with his friends, they took turns to push each other downhill.

On the fateful day, Mutua was pushed downhill and sped onto the road where a car missed running over him by a whisker. He proceeded to fall into a ditch and hit his head on the concrete.
