Meru Senator Mithika Linturi and his now-estranged wife Marianne Kitany were making love at Sopa Lodge in Naivasha when Linturi was required in Parliament to impeach CS Anne Waiguru.
Kitany sensationally claimed on Tuesday in court that on the day Linturi was supposed to table his motion to impeach the Devolution CS, they were together at Sopa Lodge where they spent the night.
Linturi had wanted Waiguru impeached for alleged abuse of office and other alleged offences.
President Uhuru Kenyatta wanted the embarrassing motion to die and never come to a vote. Linturi was under intense pressure to give in.
And so he was a no-show and Waiguru remained in office.
Kitany said on Tuesday that Linturi brought the motion to impeach Waiguru. But as the chief of staff in the office of Deputy President William Ruto, she and others from the Presidency were tasked with making sure he dropped the motion.
For the motion to proceed, Linturi had to appear in Parliament on the day it was tabled.
“However, on the day that he was to table the motion, we were with him at Sopa Lodge,” Kitany told the court.
She said after she and Linturi returned from Naivasha, their love grew and she introduced him to her family including her brothers and sisters.
