Marianne Kitany now claims Meru Senator Mithika Linturi was unfaithful, prompting her to file a divorce application in court.

Appearing before Milimani Commercial Court Chief Magistrate, Peter Ngare, on Wednesday, August 28, Ms Kitany said one day she peeped at her husband’s phone and “found a woman had sent him a pornographic video”.

That discovery, on top of being denied her conjugal rights, drove Ms Kitany into filing for a formal separation from the former Igembe South MP.

“I filed for divorce because Linturi was cheating on me,” Ms Kitany told the court, adding: “He slept with other women in town.”

“Linturi would come home late, and did not want to give me my conjugal rights,” said Ms Kitany.

The complainant further claims that Mr Linturi shortchanged her, going ahead to inscribe his name on the documents bearing her property.

According to Ms Kitany, Mr Linturi would later allege that it is Ms Kitany who was attempting to steal his material possessions.

“Linturi threatened he would kill me,” said Ms Kitany, adding: “He even reported to police that I wanted to steal his property.”

Ms Kitany, who is in her early 40s, further told the court that the Meru Senator “told police that my children, who were staying with us in the Runda home were terrorists”.

Mr Linturi and Ms Kitany tied the knot in April 2016 after nearly two years of dating. The estranged couple first met each other in 2013 at Deputy President William Ruto’s office, where Ms Kitany worked as the chief of staff.

The hearing continues.
