In the application filed before the Milimani Commercial Court, Ms Nganga is named as the plaintiff while Dr Mutua is the defendant.
Not legally married
In a statement filed in court, Ms Nganga wants the court to issue a permanent injunction restraining Dr Mutua, his agents, officers, servants, bodyguards or other employees or any person acting on his instructions, from accessing, visiting, entering or in any other manner getting close to her home and work place, or unlawfully seizing any of her assets.
Ms Nganga wants Dr Mutua restrained by the court from selling, disposing of, using, hiring out, leasing out, claiming ownership of and/or interfering with the motor vehicle, pending the hearing and determination of the case.
Speaking during a press conference in Nairobi flanked by lawyer Philip Murgor, Ms Nganga said she was not legally married to Dr Mutua, but that they were “long-term partners”.
