In Summary
  • Barons Estate Ltd moved to court in 2018, accusing Mr Linturi of running Atticon Ltd single-handedly.
  • The company's director is Ms Kitany’s son Collins Kipchumba.
  • The judge said Barons provided no proof that the respondents engaged in fraudulent transactions.

The High Court has dismissed an application against Meru Senator Mithika Linturi filed by a company linked to his estranged wife Marianne Kitany.

Barons Estate Ltd, whose director is Ms Kitany’s son Collins Kipchumba, moved to court in 2018, accusing Mr Linturi of running Atticon Ltd, in which he has shares, single-handedly, to the detriment of the other directors and shareholders.

He accused Mr Linturi of taking overdrafts from Family Bank without their consent, and allotting shares to other parties without the authority of the board of directors.

In its application, Barons sought to have the court restrain Mr Linturi and Atticon from dealing with the company’s shares negatively, pending the determination of the matter.

BOOST LIQUIDITY

Mr Kipchumba told the court that sometime in August 2015, they were approached by an emissary to boost Atticon’s liquidity, and that Barons guaranteed a 12-month overdraft.

Thereafter, Barons charged its property to the bank.
