Labour Cabinet Secretary Florence Bore has explained why she had to move out of MP Edward Muriu’s house at night.
Speaking on Thursday, Bore said it was because she had worked late on the said day.
She noted that after receiving the deposit refund, she looked for another house and in an hour, she had a new home.
The CS equated the controversy around the house to “a blessing in disguise”.
“He gave me the refund of the 10 per cent deposit and I moved out. There was a question that I moved out at night. It is because during the day I was working and I actually worked until around 9 pm. When I came home, I saw he had already released the deposit into my account,” Bore said.
“I’m happy my children are happy and I wish him (Muriu) well.”
On not having an agreement for the sale of the house, Bore said she had done her part of what they had initially agreed on.
The CS added that she did not use force and the matter could have been solved amicably.
“I signed my part, maybe he had not signed his part but I had already done what he wanted and the 10 per cent he wanted. And it was not something big, we should have discussed it. If he had gotten another buyer I had no issue and I didn’t use any force,” Bore said.
Bore and Muriu had been embroiled in a fight over ownership of the Sh120 million home.
