Thursday August 22, 2019 - Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru was dragged into the messy divorce case involving Marianne Kitany and Meru Senator Mithika Linturi by city lawyer, Donald B. Kipkorir.
This is after Kikorir alleged that the Kirinyaga Governor had instructed him to demand a third of the couple's property for facilitating their union.
“On instructions from @AnneWaiguru, we place on notice Mithika Linturi and Marianne Kitany that as my client’s matter ignited their romance leading to marriage, our client shall claim 1/3 of their matrimonial property. Be guided appropriately,” Kipkorir said.
However, Waiguru's communications representative has dismissed Korir's allegations, maintaining that Waiguru has not issued such a directive.
“Kipkorir is not madam’s lawyer, and she hasn’t asked him to make such an application.”
“When I showed the governor that tweet, she just laughed and said that, maybe, the lawyer is just joking, or seeking virality.”
“However, I can confirm that Ms. Mumbi hasn’t made such a request,” stated Waiguru’s communication representative.
The case has witnessed the revelation of family secrets including gifts exchanged when the relationship was still blossoming.
