Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has called out The Star newspaper for publishing a story about Meru Senator Mithika Linturi’s bedroom prowess.
Mr Linturi’s estranged wife, Marianne Kitany, had filed, in her sworn affidavit, that her husband often “failed to rise to the occasion in the bedroom”, hence more reason as to why they had issues in their union.
Attaching a screenshot of “The Star” headline, which read: “Linturi was unable to ‘rise to the occasion’ in the bedroom – Wife”, Sonko questioned the editorial decision that prompted the headline.
“This is nonsense of the highest order and totally unacceptable… We shall not allow them (The Star) to publish bedroom stories of other men with their wives. Which journalist was present in their bedroom during that material night. Shenzi nyinyi. Linturi take them to court this is good money. And since your matrimonial residence is in Nairobi I shall be an amicus curiae in this case on probono. Musidharau wanaume to that extent na hata tukizeeka. God gave us tongues and fingers,” said the governor on Facebook.
Sonko’s post attracted thousands of comments either agreeing with him or faulting his school of thought.
