Controversial Othaya MP Mary Wambui has once again sensationally claimed that she is still married to former President Mwai Kibaki.
She was prompted by a former Mayor of Nairobi, Nathan Kahara, and a Kiambu MCA, Mburuti Kinuthia, who, introducing her at a public function, referred to the politician as Wambui wa Mwai.

"The media have been reporting that I have another wife or wives. I have only one wife," he told a rare news conference as Lucy stood beside him, grim-faced.
"I have gotten in this foul mood after listening to some statements that were made yesterday, the other day or even recently. I want to say that anyone who is bent on that course will see me in court," warned Kibaki then.
The comments came after former MP Paul Muite claimed that the government ordered a raid on a local newspaper in 2006 to stop it publishing a story on Kibaki's .
