    Mithika Linturi nominated CS with pending court cases.

    Published on

    On Tuesday, September 27, Nairobi County Senator Edwin Sifuna voiced his displeasure with the list of Cabinet candidates and urged his colleagues to carry out their constitutional duty throughout the vetting process.

    Mithika Linturi, a former senator from Meru and the nominee for the Agriculture docket, was charged with inciting hatred in February 2022.

    The Nakuru court, however, dismissed the charges after hearing that the prosecution and the police had missed the deadlines set for submitting evidence.

    An additional allegation of attempted rape in a Nanyuki hotel was filed against the ex-Senator of Meru in September 2021.

    However, Linturi denied the allegations and was eventually granted free on a Ksh500,000 bail order. The allegations were baseless and politically motivated, he said.
