Meru Senator Mithika Linturi Accused of Attempted Rape

Meru Senator Mithika Linturi is on the spot after sneaking into a couple’s hotel room when the husband was out and allegedly attempting to rape the woman.

Besides this, the senator is also facing a nasty divorce case with his estranged wife Marriane Keitani. He moved to court this morning under certificate of urgency seeking to stop the police from arresting or charging him with the offenses of attempted rape and indecent act with an adult related to the incident.

According to police documents that were availed by the woman, she reported that the incident happened when she was with her husband and friends at Maiyan Villa Resort in Nanyuki. The woman added that she retired back to their room early that night but she did not lock the door because her husband was still out.

Unfortunately, she heard the door unlocked at around 3am and since the lights were switched off she assumed it was her husband and the person entered her bed and started touching her in a very unusual manner.

Surprisingly, the man the woman thought was her husband never uttered a single word while he inappropriately touched her and later, they both fell asleep.

“30 minutes later while in romantic mood I heard a knock on the door and went to open the door only to find my husband standing at the door,” report by the woman read.

After she switched on the lights, they both realized that there was a stranger in their bed and that the husband became furious raising an alarm.

This alarm alarted their friends who were with them in the hotel and came to investigate and one of them identified the stranger as Senator Linturi.

It was established that the senator was also a guest in the resort and had a room adjacent to the couple’s room and it’s not clear if the legislator confused his villa with that of the couple or he just did what he knew.

The couple decided to file their complaint of attempted rape and indecent act with an adult against him which he may be charged with if the DPP approves the charge sheet.

In his application through Lawyer Charles Mwongela, Linturi wants the court to bar the state from charging and arresting him for the attempted rape and indecent act with an adult.
