Woman seeks child support from Franklin Mithika Linturi

In April, 2013, There is a case of a woman who accused police of not arresting Igembe South MP Mithika Linturi for failing to pay monthly maintenance of Sh50,000. The woman claimed she has made many trips to Kileleshwa police station to ask that a warrant of arrest issued by a Nairobi court be effected. The woman, a dentist, went to court in August 2012 after the MP allegedly abandoned her and their three-year-old son.

She claimed that she was evicted from their Kilimani house and is living in Riruta. The court granted orders directing the MP to pay the woman Sh50,000 every month. She says that she was married to the lawmaker in May, 2008 under Meru customary law and she gave birth to a son on March 7, 2010.

The woman claims Linturi accepted responsibility for the child and provided for him “materially, morally and emotionally”. She says that all was well until August 2011 when Linturi became cruel, abusive, irresponsible and negligent towards her and the child. She claims that the MP had failed to maintain the child, has neglected him and stopped giving moral and emotional support.
