Tuesday September 17, 2019 - Meru Senator Mithika Linturi’s estranged wife, Marianne Kitany, was completely snubbed during the burial of Linturi's father on Tuesday.
According to reports, Kitany was snubbed during the eulogy of Linturi's father, with Mercy Kaimenyi being the only one listed as Linturi senior's daughters-in-law.
In a letter dated January 10th filed at the High Court’s Family Division in Nairobi, Mr Linturi stated that he never divorced Ms Kaimenyi, who he married in April 2005 at Tigania Catholic Parish in Meru.
The Senator is involved in an ugly divorce case with Marianne Kitany, who is also the former Chief of Staff of Deputy President William Ruto.
The Senator’s father, Peter Linturi, died two weeks ago when the Senator's estranged wife, Marianne Kitany, was still giving her evidence in court about their tumultuous marriage.
Interestingly, Kitany claimed that she met the Senator through the Deputy President.
During one of her damning testimonies, she claimed that the DP Ruto asked her to convince the Senator to withdraw an impeachment motion he had tabled against the then Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru.
She recalled that the then Igembe South MP frequented the DP’s office after March 4th, 2013 General Elections with a lot of complaints.
“The DP, as a result, gave me strict instructions to deal with Linturi’s regular complaints,” Kitany narrated to the court during her divorce hearing.
Ms Kitany had asked for the adjournment of the case to allow her to mourn her father-in-law.
Through her lawyer, Danstan Omari, she had stated that she was planning to travel to Igembe to take part in the burial plans.
