Murang’a governor Mwangi wa Iria is now being blamed for the marriage collapse of his daughter Jaja Racheal.
A close friend of her former husband Ben Gatu says that the governor ordered her to quit the marriage and vacate out of their Runda home after claims of constant battering from Gatu.
The governor, it is said, even told her Gatu’s business investments were suspicious and he engaged daughters of influential personalities to win police protection and engage in illicit trade.
Gatu allegedly abuses drugs and battered her day and night and at times she cried all night. Racheal is now staying with her mother together with her daughter.
Gatu married Rachael after separating with Nairobi governor Mike Sonko’s daughter Saumu Mbuvi.
