Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua has given relationship advice to young couples days after separating from his wife Lillian Nganga.
Speaking during an interview on Friday, Mutua urged young people to treat their partners kindly and move on with life in case of a break-up.
He added it is wrong for people who loved each other to become enemies when their relationship comes to an end.
“I see young people wanakosana wanatukanana na kupigana, if you have been in love with somebody that love never goes away. Everybody should treat the other kindly and move on with life. Maisha iko hivo,” Mutua noted.
He added: “I’m a believer in love and I believe that you need to never give up on love, regards of what… and always celebrate the people coming to your life. Always have a relationship with everybody who is coming into your life that is amicable, a relationship of friendliness.”
Mutua and Nganga announced the end of their marriage on Sunday but did not disclose the cause of the split.
“Winds of change blew my way and two months ago, I decided to end the long-term relationship with Dr. Alfred Mutua. We had a good run and I am forever grateful to God he brought us together. We remain friends,” Nganga said in a statement posted on Instagram.
Governor Mutua confirmed the same on his social media accounts, saying they will remain close friends.
“Two months ago, we decided to slowly disengage. We are on amicable terms and remain very close as friends. We will continue to talk, meet and share ideas constantly,” he wrote.
