Former Senator Johnson Muthama’s journey has been one of resilience, tenacity, and transformation.
The political stalwart, also known as the Chairman of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), has made headlines yet again, this time for a remarkable transformation that speaks volumes about his determination to reclaim his past and shape a vibrant future.
The Mua house, nestled in the scenic locale of Kathome, Machakos County, had been at the center of a protracted legal battle between Muthama and his ex-wife, Agnes Kavindu, who is now the Machakos Senator.
The five-bedroom house, surrounded by 45 acres of sprawling land, had witnessed both joyous moments and stormy disputes in the past.
The legal saga dates back to 2014 when Muthama allegedly ordered Kavindu to vacate the Mua home, leaving her and their children without the support she believed she was entitled to.
The ensuing legal tussle culminated in a divorce through judicial proceedings in 1983. However, fate had other plans for the former couple as they rekindled their relationship in 1995 and remarried, this time adhering to Kamba customary law.
The complexities of their relationship did not deter Kavindu from fighting for her rights to the Mua home. In court documents, she maintained that she moved to the Mua residence after giving birth to their fourth child in 1996.
However, the court ruled that she was living at Muthama’s Mua home at his discretion, not as his wife, paving the way for the property’s return to its rightful owner.
After years of legal battles and a victorious outcome, Muthama took a bold step, transforming the once-abandoned Mua house into an events garden in 2019.
The house, which had been previously used as a venue for political activities, underwent extensive renovations to cater to various gatherings.
Today, the events garden serves as a multifunctional venue for meetings, weddings, photoshoots, and celebrations of all kinds.
