  • Marianne Kitany, the estranged wife to Meru Senator, Mithika Linturi, on Wednesday, revealed hitherto undisclosed details about their relationship. She said that Linturi had married three women and divorced them before he seduced her.
  • She also revealed how she pampered him during their happier times.Testifying in their divorce hearing at a Milimani court, Kitany told the judge that on more than one occasion, she personally dug deep in her pockets, just to express the love she had for the senator.

    She alleged that when they first met, Linturi was broke and could not afford rent. The former aide to Deputy President William claimed that she invited Linturi to live in her house in Kileleshwa.

    “I came to learn later that he had rent arrears and I assisted by paying…he asked for some money to pay rent and much later I got to see letters from the landlord. I gave him Ksh 200,000,” Kitany disclosed.

    The court also heard that on December 2014, the couple travelled to Australia to enroll all their children in school at a cost of Ksh11million, which she paid.

    Kitany added that on December 2015, she forked out another Ksh 800,000 after they both took their family to Mauritius for a two-week trip.

    The former chief of staff at Ruto’s office further revealed how, in January 2016, the two hired an architect and started the construction of their house in Meru, at a cost of Ksh36million.

    “The chunk of that money was from my pocket…I gave Ksh26million. I gave out that money because we had agreed to stay together as husband and wife,” she claimed.

    Kitany also told the court that it was after they got married that people saw a change in him, specifically in grooming.

    “I cooked good food for him and took very good care of him,” Kitany noted.

    Linturi, on the other hand, had disputed marrying Kitany and stated that he was legally married to Mercy Kaimenyi at the time Kitany claimed they were in a relationship.

Published

on

Victor Ber, husband to popular comedienne Caroline Wanjiku alias Teacher Wanjiku has refuted allegations leveled against him by Churchill Show comedian Zainabu Zeddy. Through social media, Zeddy accused Victor Ber of frustrating comedians to the point of pushing them to give up on their dreams.

In a long post shared on her Instagram account, Zeddy described Ber as ‘depression maker’ thanks, to his tough words during auditions.

“Here is the guy behind the artists’ woes @VictorBer24 creative director at Churchill Show “Depression maker”. If you have been to Churchill Showauditions, you know this guy. He will criticize you with his tough words,” she wrote in part.

The mother of one pointed an accusing fingers at Ber for the death of two popular comedians who are believed to have suffered from depression during their last days.

“Ber, how many times did Njenga cry to you before his death? How many times did he call you? After I posted I’m looking for Kasee you all looked for him and lied to him that he will be performing during the show and he came for rehearsals but you told him he was going to perform during the Machakos show. When he came you denied him an opportunity,” claimed Zeddy.

Responding to the accusations, the father of two in an interview claimed that he is not responsible for anyone falling into depression and if anything, Zeddy is just going through grief.

“I am not the reason behind anyone’s depression, I understand where Zeddy is coming from and it is okay for her to speak her mind. She is grieving and we are all grieving. We have done our best to ensure that every Churchill Show member is doing just fine,” he said.

Zeddy’s accusation come barely a week after the death of Churchill show comedian Joseph Musyoki Kivindu popularly known as Kasee.

“The question is, for how long will you continue to make artists suffer? For how long will artists live with depression? Comedians please do not comment because you will not be allocated slots. I have already burned the bridges. The day it will down on you that God is the provider and giver, you will never beg anyone for such opportunities,” she added.

However, Ber has dismissed Zeddy’s accusations and further added that Kasee was his neighbour and they always spent time together in Kinoo.

He added that the comedian had reformed and believed that he did not commit suicide, but his drink could have been spiked.

“We really do not think that Kasee committed suicide. His drink might have been spiked for he was doing very well. He fell on his way home and by the time we received a call, he was being taken to the morgue. We are waiting for the postmortem results as his body lies at Chiromo mortuary.”
