Mithika Linturi Finally In The Clear Over Assault Charges

Former Meru Senator Mithika Linturi was among President William Ruto's Cabinet Secretaries nominees that many people disapproved of due to integrity issues. This is because the former Senator had an active sexual assault case in Court.

However, the former Senator is now a happy man after the case against him was dropped. The woman who sued Linturi withdrew the case citing an out of court settlement. The ODPP confirmed this telling the court that the woman was not coerced or threatened to withdraw the case.

This now means that Mithika Linturi who is the Agriculture Cabinet Secretary nominee is now in the clear. He will now have a smooth vetting in Parliament as he is not facing any charges in court.

Still, this is not the first saga involving Linturi. He was previously engaged in a divorce drama with his former wife Maryanne Keitany.

The job is now up to Parliament to vet Linturi and see if he is fit to serve in Cabinet. Only time will tell how it will go.
