Mary Kitany’s children claim their estranged stepfather used their properties in Kileleshwa and Nyari to secure loans without their consent.

Arnold Kipkurui and Rhoda Kitany have sued Meru Senator Mithika Linturi and their stepsister Emily Nkirote for allegedly using their properties to get Sh37.5 million loan.

The two, through lawyer Stephen Mogaka, claim the legal charges over the suit property are a product of fraud.

“We discovered that the properties have been charged and or mortgaged without the knowledge, consent and or our authority, or that of Noniko Ltd board of directors, authorised agents, employees and or servants,” the court documents read.

The siblings said they discovered the title deeds to the properties were missing in December last year.

The directors of Noniko Holdings Ltd claim Linturi and his daughter have continued to request for and granted loans, overdrafts, advances and or credit facilities through fraudulent misrepresentation.

They want the court to bar the senator from registering any further charge in respect to the two properties in Kileleshwa and Nyari.

They argue that they have never been requested to execute nor have they ever executed, registered and or caused to be executed or registered any legal charge instrument over the suit premises and or suit property.
