Ruto’s name dragged into Linturi-Kitany divorce case

Deputy President William Ruto’s name has been dragged into the messy divorce between his former Chief of Staff Marianne Kitany and Meru Senator Mithika Linturi.

Kitany narrated how Ruto had instructed her to deal with Linturi’s regular complaints which came in the aftermath of the Jubilee administration taking power in 2013.

She added that for the first year, the relationship was mainly professional but things changed after Ruto was unable to convince Linturi to drop an impeachment motion against then Devolution CS Anne Waiguru.

The former aide to the DP said his boss was concerned about Linturi’s plan to impeach Waiguru, hence requested for her assistance to soften the legislator.

Kitany said her efforts were fruitful as the motion failed after Linturi failed to show up the mention of his motion – hence saving Waiguru.

I, therefore, embarked on that mission as ordered by the DP…When the impeachment motion was first tabled in Parliament, Linturi and I were at Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge having a good time. [At that time, he had already won my heart,” she told the court.

The latest development comes in the heated divorce between Linturi and Kitany which has grabbed national headlines in the past year.

Linturi has denied being married to the former Chief of Staff in the DP’s office – describing her as a visitor in her home.

Kitany, however, has maintained that they planned, actualised and attended a wedding ceremony at the Senator’s home in Meru.

She added that Linturi also carried out an official customary marriage with her, met her family, paid dowry, gifted her parents in accordance with all customary preconditions.

She has also accused her estranged lover of forging marriage and official documents touching on property they jointly owned.
