Sonko breathing fire over newspaper story on Linturi’s ‘bedroom woes’

Governor Mike Sonko has been angered by a story published in a local newspaper touching on Meru Senator Mithika Linturi’s bedroom matters.

The story, published in The Star newspaper, was based on an affidavit filed in court, Mary Kitany, the estranged wife of Mr Linturi.

Sonko quoting the Facebook post by The Star newspaper slammed the publication.


“This is nonsense of the highest order and totally unacceptable. The Star is becoming a gutter press day by day. We shall not allow them to publish bedroom stories of other men with their wives. Which journalist was present in their bedroom during that material night. Shenzi nyinyi (You idiots),” posted the governor.

Sonko in his post asked Linturi to take the publication to court to seek legal redress.

“And since your matrimonial residence is in Nairobi I shall be an amicus curiae in this case on probono,” read part of the post.
