Two days ago, Coast Region Police Commander Paul Ndambuki, on Monday, June 14, stated that detectives were tracking his whereabouts after he failed to appear before the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) to record a statement.
“He seems to be elusive and the next course of action is to send detectives from where the complaint was lodged,” he said
Sleuths have been liaising with detectives in Nairobi and other locations to have him record his statement after one Diana Opemi Lutta, accused him of assault and said she was willing to proceed with the case.
Insiders privy to the case stated that Kituyi reportedly reached out to the woman and asked to solve the case out of court.
The prosecution disclosed that it had lined up four eyewitnesses to testify against Kituyi including two guards and the hotel staff.
“Detectives have already recorded statements of four other witnesses who saw what transpired,” Ndambuki pointed out.
Kituyi, a former Secretary-General for the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), however, rejected assaulting the woman.
“Someone had written a report claiming I had assaulted her but it was not true. I’ve never beaten any woman in my life nor do I intend to ever do it at any given time. We sorted out the case and it was withdrawn,” Kituyi’s public statement read.
Kituyi is a family man and his wife and children, just like him, are scholars and entrepreneurs. Mukhisa’s wife, Ling Kituyi, is originally from Norway. The two met in the 90s in the European country when the former Minister was pursuing his Masters in Philosophy at the University of Bergen.
Ling Kituyi is the Head of Staff Health and Well Being at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Switzerland, a position she has held since 2015.
Prior to her role at the UNFCR, Kituyi’s partner was at the World Health Organization (WHO)as the foreign medical team coordinator for Ebola response in Liberia between November 2014 and June 2015.
At WHO, she assisted organizations and member states build capacity and strengthen health systems by coordinating the deployment of quality-assured medical teams in emergencies.
Ling also served as UN’s chief medical officer at UN offices for 12 years, between October 2002 and 2014.
The Kituyi’s are blessed with four children, Ivar Makari Kituyi, Sitati Kituyi, Laila Mayilila, and Thor Masasule. Makari however died in 2015 aged 30 after suffering a diabetic attack.
Sitati is the co-founder of African Stick Photo that deals with digital photography in Africa.
Laila, has an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a Masters in Public Health Policy from King’s College London while Thor Masasule holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Portsmouth University.
Mukhisa Kituyi who at one point revealed that his wife and some of his children speak fluent Swahili and his vernacular Luhya Bukusu dialect is beleaguered and his clean public image tainted after a video leaked of him naked, in bed with an unknown woman.
