Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has been dragged into the ongoing divorce case involving Meru Senator Mithika Linturi and his estranged wife Marianne Kitany.
The man behind dragging of Waiguru’s name in the messy case is none other than city lawyer Donald B. Kipkorir.
The controversial lawyer alleges that the 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 tweeted on Wednesday.
However, Waiguru’s spokesperson has dismissed Korir’s allegations saying her boss hasn’t 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,” Waiguru’s spokesperson is quoted by K24 as saying.
