Machakos County First Lady Lillian Ng’ang’a was the guest of honor in Miss Tourism Machakos 2016 gala held on Saturday night at the Machakos People’s Park.
Despite the heavy downpour, Ms Ng’ang’a braved the cold to attend the ceremony and stayed on until its close.
Saying she stunned is an understatement. Photos of the striking county top woman have since been shared on social media, with many users expressing awe at her beauty.
In a January interview with Citizen Digital, Governor Mutua revealed he unconditionally loves Ms Ng’ang’a – not only because of her splendor, but because of her character and will.
“Lillian is a nice lady; she is lovely, beautiful, a great person but above all, she has passion for other people. I like people who believe that life is not just about themselves – it’s what you do for society and destitute people. She has passion for development.”
“Many times we stay awake up to 2am discussing Machakos – where people need water, what we can do for needy mothers… She’s always out there looking for groups to help; like now she is very busy looking for organizations which can provide credit financing for some of our women,” he said.
But how did the lovebirds meet?
“I met with Lillian here (in Kenya). My poetry played a huge part in sweeping her off her feet; lazima ukuwe na lugha, otherwise,mambo ingekuwa ngumu! Nilikuwa pia chap chap; wajua ningezubaa, ningekuta mtu amepita naye (one must smooth-talk at one point; otherwise, things would have been difficult; and I am glad I approached her promptly). Kenyan men are good at slicing; you know what I am talking about,” he said.
Always superbly dressed, the Machakos First Lady chooses what her husband wears. Governor Mutua confessed.
University student crowned
Karen Nkatha Muriithi, 21, beat 11 other beauties to walk home with the lucrative Miss Tourism Machakos County crown.
The university student was in disbelief and for a moment lost in joyous tears. Ann Mbula and Tabitha Kimeu were called out as the first and second runners-up, respectively.
Cheers rented the air when Lilian Ng’ang’a took to the stage, hugged and congratulated Ms Nkatha before crowning her and handing her a KSh100, 000 cheque.
Ann received KSh50, 000 with the second runners-up taking home KSh25, 000.
