A court on Monday ruled to deny Meru Senator Mithika Linturi from accessing his Runda residence in Nairobi.

The ruling made by the court reinstated the orders after a successful petition by his wife Maryanne Keitany.

The orders had been lifted in December last year after Keitany failed to appear in court for the case.

Linturi through his lawyer Muthomi Thiankolu appealed against the ruling made by senior resident magistrate Isaac Orenge that gave Kitanyi access to the residence to collect her belongings.

In October 2018, the court had barred the Senator from even being close to the house after his wife had obtained the orders.

Linturi attempted shooting

Keitany had made a formal complaint to the police in November after she claimed that the husband had threatened to shoot her dead after a domestic quarrel.

The Meru Senator was questioned by the DCI detectives but denied that he had been asked to record a statement.

Keitany who is a former chief of staff in Deputy President William Ruto’s office, formally filed for a divorce last year.

Reports indicated that divorce papers pointed out that the former chief of staff alleged that Linturi had lost all family values and had failed to provide material, and emotional support as well as love, affection and care.
