Meru Senator, Mithika Linturi and his former lover Marianne Keitany have had a heated contest in court on whether they were married or not. This has led to both of them to expose their dirty linen to the public.
In a quest to prove that she was indeed married to the Senator, the former chief of staff and DP Ruto’s office narrated how it all started. She said that it was Ruto that instructed her to deal with Linturi’s complaints against Waiguru after 2013 general elections.
It was professional at first until Ruto could not convince the Senator to drop the impeachment motion against the then Devolution CS Ann Waiguru. Ruto asked the lady to soften the then member of parliament.
“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.
Keitany added that the two carried out a traditional wedding in Meru and dowry was paid and she has footages to prove it. Linturi on the other hand insists that he was never married to her and she was just a visitor in her home.
