Meru Senator Mithika Linturi and Marianne Kitany’s divorce proceedings have been making headlines this week as Kitany pulls all the stops to prove she was married to the politician. 

On Thursday, the court heard that the two were considered married after Kitany chewed a miraa leaf and Linturi drank a glass of mursik (sour milk) given to him by Nandi elders.

The two are entangled in a dispute over a Runda property, with the politician claiming he was never married to Kitany and accusing her of trying to steal his property.
