In Summary
  • Ms Wangari has cited mental anguish, possible ridicule, stress, stigma and accompanying danger on the part of the children.
  • In a recent application, Mr Karanja had applied to be allowed access to the children.
  • The MP argues that the character, reputation and history of Mr Karanja is inconsistent with the best interest of the minors.

Gilgil MP Martha Wangari has moved to court seeking to have her former husband Peter Njoroge Karanja restrained from having any form of interaction with his two children pending the finalisation of the matter.

In an application seen by the Nation, the lawmaker also wants him barred until criminal proceedings against him are concluded.

Mr Karanja is a suspect in the murder of Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen.

She cited mental anguish, possible ridicule, stress, stigma and accompanying danger on the part of the children as some of the reasons why she wants him restrained from interacting with the minors.

ACCESS CHILDREN

In a recent application, Mr Karanja had applied to be allowed access to the children and ruling on the matter is still pending in court.

The application by the MP further states that in September, Mr Karanja was arrested on allegation of criminal activities of murder.

“It is important that his true character be exposed before the honourable court can grant him any orders of access and interaction with the children,” she stated.
