Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama has denied marital ties with Ms Agnes Kavindu, saying that he will not bury her since the dowry he paid was refunded.
The Senator, who has been launching attack after attack against Wiper leader Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka, has said that he is no longer married to Kavindu.
“Whatever she is engaged in now is her own private business because we are not together and I have legal documents to that effect. If she dies today, she cannot be buried in my home because even the dowry my father (late) paid to her parents was refunded.”
Speaking to the press at his home in Tala on Thursday, the senator confirmed that the two parted ways, adding that they successfully completed their divorce in 1983. The lawmaker also said that he has since taken care of his children despite divorcing with her.
“I very much want to talk about that woman. She is not my wife. We parted ways in 1983 in court but since I am a true African man who cares about the welfare of his children, I decided to get her some place to live because she was struggling with life in Nairobi,” said Muthama.
The senator, who hinted at contesting for the Nairobi senatorial seat, also said that he has documents to show that they ended their marriage, adding that she cannot be buried at his home if she dies today.
