A magistrate court has ruled that there was no marriage between Mithika Linturi and Maryanne Kitanny saying that the doctrine of common law marriage no longer applies in Kenya and that the Marriage Act of 2014 requires parties to register a customary marriage.

“The customary law union allied to Maryanne Kitanny would not suffice as a marriage under the laws of Kenya,” the court ruled.

Linturi was in a monogamous marriage with Mercy Kaimenyi and therefore could not hold any other form of marriage said the court .
