Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has not directed city lawyer Donald B. Kipkorir to file an application demanding a third of Mithika Linturi and Marianne Kitany’s property after Ms Kitany revealed on Tuesday that a mission to stop a May, 2014 Waiguru’s impeachment motion birthed a love affair between her and Mr Linturi.
Taking to his Twitter page on Wednesday, Mr Kipkorir said he had received instructions from Ms Anne Mumbi, formerly known as Waiguru, to file a suit demanding a third of the couple’s property, given she played a key part in the blossoming of their relationship.
“On instructions from @AnneWaiguru, we place on notice Mithika Linturi and Marianne Kitany that as my client’s matter ignited their romance leading to marriage, our client shall claim 1/3 of their matrimonial property. Be guided appropriately,” said Mr Kipkorir on Twitter Wednesday.
K24 Digital reached Ms Mumbi’s communications rep for a comment on the issue, and he said that “the governor hasn’t issued any such directive”.
“Kipkorir is not madam’s lawyer, and she hasn’t asked him to make such an application. When I showed the governor that tweet, she just laughed and said that, maybe, the lawyer is just joking, or seeking virality. However, I can confirm that Ms Mumbi hasn’t made such a request,” said the governor’s communications rep.
