K24 Swahili news anchor Mwanaisha Chidzuga has denied claims that she was married to former assistant minister Danson Mungatana alongside former Miss Kenya Cecilia Mwangi.
In what could perhaps best epitomize the dwindling fortunes of Mr Mungatana, Ms Chizuga, who is rumoured to have sired two children with the former Garsen legislator, took to Twitter and Facebook to deny any relation to Miss Mwangi.
She tweeted: “Kindly note tht I Mwanaisha Chidzuga was never a Co wife 2 one Cecilia Mwangi Pls stop dragging my name n tht of my family into thse madness (sic).”
The highly secretive journalist did not expound on whether her rumoured relationship with Mr Mungatana was just a fling.
Last week, Miss Mwangi publicly announced that her relationship with Mr Mungatana was over and that she was raising their daughter alone.
Mr Mungatana is married to another woman and Miss Chizuga and Miss Mwangi were each said to be jostling to be his number two.
Mr Mungatana’s fortunes have dwindled in the last four years after he lost his parliamentary seat. He was an assistant minister during retired president Mwai Kibaki’s era.
He also recently lost his position as the chairman of the Kenya Ports Authority.
