I was more than a pretty companion: Lillian Ng'ang'a on her tenure as Machakos First Lady

Lillian Ng’ang’a has said she wrote her memoir to share her experiences during her tenure as Machakos first lady.

Speaking to Nairobi News, the mother of one said she did a lot of work behind the scenes and dismissed the ‘pretty companion’ tag.

“First reason was that I wanted to share the work I did as Machakos First Lady because I did do a lot but it was never publicized as much. I gave years of my life to many different projects that changed and improved many lives and that should not be disregarded with the blanket of I was just a pretty companion that did not do anything in Machakos County,” said Lillian.

She shared that in 2013 she was branded a certain way but she chose to remain silent, a decision she regrets.

“Secondly is to own and tell my story, my way, and not let the media’s false stories remain as truths. This I had to do to avoid a 2013 repetition where I was branded a certain way and I kept quiet,” she added.

Early this week she revealed that her son with singer Juliani recently turned two months old. Through social media, Lillian gushed over the boy – whom they named Utheri, meaning light in Kikuyu – and described him as a 'little, magical boy.'

She posted a photo of a blue card written 'it's a boy' and captioned it, "On 22.07.22 at 10.11am, A little, magical boy gave me a new title of Mommy."

"Today, I could not wait for the sunrise to see his most wondrous smile as he turns 2 Months old. Utheri, My boy...Mommy is at the zenith of happiness because of you. Happy 8 Weeks boy!" wrote Lillian.

During a past interview with Presenter Ali, Juliani confirmed that he has two children – a boy and a girl.

"I have two kids, Amore and the second one. I got him just the other day. I got him with Lilian. People don't know this story because they don't need to know but now you know. So yes we got a baby, a boy. I'm now a proud father of a girl and a boy," he said.
