The man I loved is a fraudster, says Kitany of Linturi



Former chief of staff at Deputy President William Ruto’s office Marianne Kitany on Wednesday told a Nairobi court that she did not lure Meru Senator Mithika Linturi to Naivasha during an impeachment motion in Parliament against Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru.

During cross examination by her lawyer Dunstan Omari before Magistrate George Gesora, Ms Kitany said they both willingly went to a lodge in Naivasha.

“I didn’t lure him to Sopa Lodge. I confirm that we went there on our own terms. Kindly permit me, if I may, to use the words willing buyer and willing seller,” she said.

Ms Kitany added: “On issues to do with love, love is love and that cannot be compared to knowledge from books; it’s about trust. This is my position.”

She accused Mr Linturi of defrauding her and her relatives. The senator used titles and documents of properties belonging to her and her mother, she said.

Referring to papers Mr Linturi tabled in court, indicating that he is married to Ms Mercy Kaimenyi, Ms Kitany said the senator presented himself as single, with no spouse to seek consent from.

She insisted that Mr Linturi told her he was in the process of divorcing Ms Kaimenyi before they started cohabiting and finally got married in a traditional wedding on March 26, 2016.

“I understood he was divorced and that’s why he came to my home. He was free and available to marry … He defrauded me and my relatives … he is a fraud,” said Ms Kitany, who intends to call 28 witnesses, as she concluded her testimony.

The parties in the case then asked the court to have the proceedings continue in private.

The also consented that only live streaming of the case would be barred henceforth.

Mr Linturi’s lawyer Muthomi Thiankolu and Prof George Wajackoyah had at first asked the court to completely block the media from covering the case.

The court also heard that the Law Society of Kenya had raised concerns about the case not being held in camera.

However, lawyers from both parties agreed to only block live coverage of the case after having a private discussion with the magistrate that saw a consent signed and adopted in court.

The hearing continues on September 24 and 25.

“My parents got married three days after they met. They just celebrated 37 years. Love knows no timeline,” she wrote.

The excited woman showed off a photo of her parents back when they were young and all that could be seen in their eyes was unending love.

Africanprize even flaunted a gorgeous snap of her

Of course in the modern day, such relationships are frowned upon as most people insist on dating for a couple of years before settling into marriage.

Some of her followers thought that was a love story worth celebrating.

Others however, could not wrap their heads around the thought of getting hitched to a complete stranger.

AP officer in Mama Lucy Hospital shooting drama detained for 8 days



The administration police officer suspected of shooting and killing a bodaboda rider at the Mama Lucy Kibaki hospital in Komarock area, Nairobi on Tuesday will be held in police custody until February 28.

Detective constable Laban Kalama attached to Kayole Directorate of Criminal Investigations offices obtained custodial orders to hold constable Zadock Achuka Ayego at the Kayole police station.

The orders were granted by Makadara chief magistrate Heston Nyaga.

Kalama said he is investigating a case of murder where Ayego is suspected to have shot dead Daniel Mburu Wangari during a confrontation between police officers and bodaboda riders at the hospital.

He said Mburu was rushed to the same hospital where he succumbed to injuries.

He had sought 14 days custodial orders to record witness statements, conduct a mental assessment of the suspect and get the postmortem report of the deceased.


Ayego’s lawyer Ayako Kanyoko, however, objected. She said the detention period sought by the DCI was unnecessarily long.

“The incident happened n Nairobi, all witnesses are in Nairobi and the investigations are happening in Nairobi. Three days should be enough,” Kanyoko said.

But state counsel Joseph Mburugu said the time was not lengthy. Mburugu said the investigations were not happening in the same office.

For instance, Mburugu said the mental assessment is only done at the Mathari Hospital and a booking must be done and an appointment obtained before the suspect is taken there.

Nyaga said he is considerate that the matter has sparked public interest because of the stature of the suspect – being a police officer but the same cannot affect the determination on whether he will be granted bail and bond or not.

Several witnesses have recorded statements with the DCI, including Mburu’s mother, the two riders who went to the hospital with him.

They had been arrested during a commotion that happened as they were being forced out of the hospital and locked up at the Kayole police station but were released on Wednesday after recording the statements.

The senator’s statement comes at a time when Narok county in Rift Valley is set host the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rally.

The rally will be held on Saturday, February 22, at Narok Stadium

Raila met close allies of Deputy President William Ruto from the Maa community in Rongai on Monday, February 17, ahead of the highly anticipated sensitisation forum.

The African Union envoy said the community has been sidelined for a long time and explained the BBI will ensure their issues are addressed fully.

“The meeting was informed by concerns that divisions have over the years made the Maa community lose out in negotiations that have shaped Kenya. Leaders expressed concern that the Maa delegation was divided at the Lancaster Constitution Conference and also in the making of the 2010 Constitution,” he said.

Cheruiyot asked Raila to engage all leaders who do not agree with him politically to discuss issues related to BBI.

“As a statesman, Raila should be able to engage all leaders including those on the opposite sides, let him shed his tag as the ODM leader in his quest for unity,” he said.
