Lillian Ng’ang’a responds to Mike Sonko’s comment about her viral photos with Juliani
Last night, the internet was lit up by photos of Former Machakos first lady Lillian Ng’ang’a on a night out with her boyfriend, rapper Juliani and their friend, human rights activist Boniface Mwangi.
Images of the couple were uploaded on Instagram by Mwangi, who accompanied the cosy photos with a lengthy, heartfelt caption urging fans to “go where they are loved”.
“Life is short, don’t let religion or societal expectations make you stay in an unhappy relationship. Go where you are loved. If you have loved once, you can love and be loved again, Mwangi wrote in part.
He added: “I’m here to offend those men who behave like their partners are personal assets. Assets are dead things, they have no feelings or emotions. Partners have flesh and blood, they can move on and you can do nothing about it. Money doesn’t make a man, manners do.”
The pictures, which included a sweet snap of the newly public couple embracing were widely circulated on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
They also sparked a discussion on the body language of the popular Utawala rapper, who remained with his hands clasped together in most of the photos.
“My main concern from Governor Mike Sonko’s post is why he would think I am endangering Juliani’s life. The photos as shared yesterday by our friend Bonnie were not in any way meant to hurt anybody,” Ng’ang’a wrote.
She added: “Would the sentiments be the same if it was the man who was now dating someone else? I am 100% sure it would not. Society must be fair to women. Also, if you read this post and do not see the main issue that requires discourse, you are failing your sisters, your daughters, your women friends, etc.”
The viral images come a month after Juliani recorded a statement with police regarding threats from unknown people.
“My very good friend Juliani was threatened yesterday. Someone called him and texted. He told him to stop taking pics posed with his friend Lillian Nga’ng’a, and if he continues, they will kill him. He has recorded a statement at Kileleshwa Police Station.” Boniface Mwangi wrote on Twitter in September.
Ng’anga and Mutua announced in August that they had decided to split amicably after a ten year relationship. Both parties stated that they would remain friends and continue to work together after their break-up.
“Lilian and I have been a blessing to each other. Two months ago, we decided to slowly disengage. We are in amicable terms and remain very close friends. We will continue to talk, meet and share ideas constantly,” the Machakos governor wrote on social media at the time.
