  • Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua has invited Kenyans to the soft opening of the 5-star hotel named by using the initials of his and wife’s English names. 

    Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, he explained that the opening of the A&L Hotel in Machakos was the culmination of a five-year journey. 

    He revealed that the two were passionate about the hospitality industry and the newest investment was just one of their ventures in the sector.

    “Initially we thought about saving up the money but halfway through we decided to take a loan and complete the project,” he explained. 

    He highlighted some features of the establishment which include a high ceiling dining area, outdoor eating area, large swimming pool and accommodation suits that he praised as the largest in the country.

    “Some of the suits have two or more bedrooms which all require special access,” the governor described.  

    He added that majority of the construction supplies had been sourced locally to support Kenyan businesses. 

    Mutua recalled sleeping in the cold at the site on a few occasions while supervising construction. 

    During a past interview with Kenyans.co.ke regarding the hotel, the governor let it slip that his wife Lilian was very instrumental in the construction of the establishment. 

    His entrepreneurial skills kicked in while he was still a teenager and has natured them over the years to create his vast wealth. 

    Apart from the hospitality industry, he has ventured into video production and at one time ran a local TV station as well as created the Cobra Squad and Beba Beba shows. 

    He also has interests in aviation and export-based agriculture.
