Kitany: Linturi could not pay his rent

The now infamous divorce proceedings between Marianne Kitany and Mithika Linturi are taking an exceedingly interesting dimension after the enstranged wife continued to spill the beans on their union.

On Wednesday afternoon, Kitany told the court that she housed Linturi after the Meru senator failed to pay rent for his then apartment along Ngong Road.

“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 Sh200,000,” Kitany said.

Kitany, who formerly worked as the Chief of Staff in Deputy President William Ruto’s office, told the court during a cross-examination that that she married Linturi in a customary marriage ceremony in 2016.

She told the court that Linturi had informed her that he was single and available having divorced three wives; Susan Gacheri Kimani, Mercy Kaimenyi and Hellen Mumbi Kariuki.

“I came in as the fourth wife” she tpld teh court.
