Meru Senator Mithika Linturi’s estranged wife Marianne Kitany has claimed that she tasted miraa for the sake of the love she had for the lawmaker.
The Former chief of staff at Deputy President William Ruto’s office told the court that she used to see Miraa but she had never tasted the same until that day the senator went to her home for the traditional marriage.
Kitany has shown that she is ready to prove that they were married with the senator before things fell apart for them.
“I used to see Miraa but had not tasted….Yes the Meru ritual ended with the miraa and then the speech began,“ she said in part.
She also told the court that senator paid sh.100,000 bride price to seal their union, adding that she is surprised to hear the senator denying that they were once married.
The complainant revealed that the senator arrived at her home in Kapchemosin village Nandi South with 19 other persons during her traditional marriage in two cars.
Kitany had also said that she gifted the mother of the lawmaker with a Nissan X-trail just to win her heart as they settled down in their marriage.
She also said that she had taken the senator and his children to Austria where she spent Sh.11 million to ensure that they bonded for the sake of their love affair.
