Senator Mithika Linturi denounces Maryanne Keitanny in court as domestic dispute gets nastier

Published

on

Drama over Meru Senator Mithika Linturi’s palatial residence in Nairobi’s Runda estate continued to unfold on Christmas Day eve before the corridors of justice.

Even though High Court Judge John Oyiego ordered that Ms Marianne Kitany, former deputy President William Ruto’s chief of staff, be accompanied by the Runda Police Station boss and her children into the residence by 5pm Monday to pick her belonging, Mr Linturi denied being married to her.

In filed case documents, the Senator said that he only allowed Ms Kitany into the Mae Ridge County Villas House as a guest and that she has been in a monogamous marriage with a Mr Langat.

“I am and have been in a monogamous marriage with Mercy Kaimenyi Mithika at all material times to these proceedings,” said Mr Linturi.

He told court that Ms Kitany owns several multi-million shilling properties and assets through her children and close relatives as proxy or nominee shareholders in Barono Estates Ltd and Noniko Holdings Ltd, from which she can comfortably get excellent accommodation.

He argued that the case in court as instituted by her is aimed at depriving him of his rights, interests and ownership of various properties which she has never made any contribution towards acquisition or improvement.

Ms Kitany, who has asked the court for exclusive occupation of the disputed residence, told court that the politician threw her out of the house together with her three children and that she lost Sh10 million to goons in the process.

She told court that the two got married customarily in 2006, lived happily and acquired property together. The feud over the house boiled over in October.

The court ordered Mr Linturi out of the residence and to stay away from Ms Kitany. Early this month, Mr Linturi ejected her out of the home using goons dressed like police officers. He told court that she has over 200 properties countrywide and houses in Nairobi’s South B estate hence does not need the residence.

Monday’s reprieve only granted her access to pick her belongings before the court gives a detailed ruling on December 31 on how the disputed property will be preserved pending the determination of their case.

City hall on the spot for spending Sh250 Million as contractor tarmacs only 100 metres

Published

on

By JUDITH GICOBI

Nairobi county government is under scrutiny again over a stalled road project, which has taken more than ten years to end notwithstanding, the millions of shillings spent into its construction.

Back and forth is what has been between the county government and the contractor responsible for the rehabilitation of John Osogo Road in Dandora Phase 4 continue.

The John Osogo road, which is the main road leading to Dandora Dumpsite, is in apathetic state. It has raked in millions of shillings in budgetary allocations since the days of the defunct Nairobi City Council.

Former Governor Evans Kidero’s government in 2016 set aside Sh180 million towards its repair. Since then, the construction of the road has seen only four extensions with the latest one lapsing in September, 2019.

The area MCA Francis Otieno has tried following up on the matter with the contractor who has not been at the site. The contractor resurfaced to do 100 meters on the road and then going underground again.

But the contractor is delaying work claiming pending invoice payments for the last 28days.

“This is not feasible because our budgets do not have provisions for interest on delayed payments. All payment certificates have been paid, but the contractor has refused to go back to site,” Ms Kangogo said while appearing before Nairobi County Assembly Environment Committee.

Odd death notice reveals the vicious battles among co-wives

Published

on

An oddity in departed banker Thomas Anyumba’s death announcement early this week has thrust back to the limelight the debate on cohabiting couples.In yet another first in the evolving vocabulary of death announcements, those who placed the notice acknowledged the woman Anyumba cohabited with before his death.This was besides acknowledging the ex-student leader’s wife in the same announcement.

“Husband of Esther Achieng’ Owiyo (Kenyatta National Hospital) and later cohabited with Winnie Achieng’ Magambo (Kenya Revenue Authority-Kisumu),” reads the notice.It turned out the appearance of the word ‘cohabit’ in the notice was just the tip of the iceberg of a protracted battle between Esther and Winnie, which had led to the burial being delayed for months.

Until his death on September 19, Anyumba was the branch manager of Cooperative Bank in Busia. He hailed from Nyarach-Rongo village, Kambija sub-location in Migori County.

His burial was slated for October 3 but failed to take place after Esther went to court seeking to bar Winnie from the burial plans.

As the battle went on in the courts, clan elders also intervened to solve the dispute and have Anyumba buried.

Sources said at the heart of the dispute is the distribution of Anyumba’s estate, which includes a residential flat at PolyView estate, a maisonette under construction in Mamboleo, both in Kisumu, and vehicles.

And now, a letter dated November 13, 2019, from lawyer PD Onyango and seen by the Saturday Standard, directs Winnie to vacate a house at Polyview Estate, Kisumu. It was not clear whether this was Anyumba’s property or whether the latest agreement to have him buried had overshadowed the vacate notice.

The letter said she has up to January 2020 to vacate and should pay rent arrears, water and electricity bills — from November 2018 — before leaving.“Take notice that you are now hereby required to clear the said rent arrears of Sh120,000 within the next 14 days from the date hereof with our collection charges of Sh12,000 from the date hereof and failure of which we shall instruct auctioneers to levy distress without any further reference to you whatsoever,” reads the letter.

“Take further notice that we are also instructed to give you notice to vacate the said premises and we hereby serve you with 60 days’ notice effective from November 13, 2019 to January 13, 2020 and you are required to hand over vacant possession of the said house on or before January 13, 2020 and you must clear any pending water and or electricity bill and rent during the notice period.”The drama notwithstanding, Anyumba was buried on Thursday in Rongo, following an out-of-court settlement of the dispute. An insider said the two warring women attended the funeral.“The first wife and the co-wife were here, at the burial ceremony,” said the source.

My Experience: I could not withstand working 18 straight hours as a house help in Saudi Arabia

Published

on

Lydia Mutua attests to have been literary desperate about improving her life and her family’s fortunes. Despite the fact that her husband is employed by a reputable company in Nairobi, the mother of three just wanted financial independence and to better her life. “I had heard that people could make good money working for rich families in Saudia, so I wanted to have that connection as well.”

Asked whether she had heard previous reports of Kenyans being tortured in Saudi Arabia, she answered to the affirmative but argued that the incentive to end her financial desperation was so huge that she overlooked the possible consequences.

“I could not imagine that I could be pocketing a cool Sh 80,000 a per month. Even if I managed to work for six months, the money could be enough for me to start a business,” revealed Lydia.

In April 2018, Lydia, who currently lives in Mlolongo Estate Nairobi, approached a local recruitment agency where she paid Sh 60,000 as processing fees plus a Sh 5,000 medical fee for hookup to Saudia employers.

“The agent told me that I have to pay Sh 60,000 processing fee plus Sh 5,000 medical fee. Since I already had some money from my salon business, I decided to sacrifice and pay for the commission fees.”

However, she was unable to withstand the heavy house chores (working for 18 hours), humiliations, and physical abuse by her employers. During her short time there, her job entailed washing dishes, clothes, cleaning, gardening every day. She would wake up at 3.30 am and sleep at 1 am, so she had only two hours to sleep. As if this was not enough, most of the time, she was given so little food while at other times denied food altogether. “Woe unto you if you make an error while performing these duties because you will be subjected to physical abuse or your salary deducted.”

“After working for two months for a middle-class business family in Sakaka, which is about 1,200 kilometres from the capital Riyadh, I decided that there was no way I could stay there and watch myself die”. She told Ureport adding that “I decided to request for help from my parents back in Kenya who sent me money for transport after which I jetted back.”

Following these experiences, Lydia vowed never to go back to Saudia in the name of looking for domestic work.

“Unless I am going for a company job, there is no way I will go back there with what I experienced,” she says.
