A 35-year-old woman who claims she had a child with the Uasin Gishu governor has moved to court seeking for child support.

Through lawyer Dennis Magare, Miss Caroline Jesang Maina claims that she had a child with Governor Jackson Mandago and filed the case as urgent at the Eldoret Law Courts.

The submissions indicated that Mr Mandago lived with Ms Maina from 1998 to 2002 and sired a boy with her in 2001.

Mr Mandago, she claims, has since neglected his parental responsibilities by failing to support the boy after he finished his primary school education.

The Early Childhood Development Education teacher says her monthly salary of Sh8,000 is not enough for the boy’s school fees, among other needs.

Ms Maina, however, wants Mr Mandago to take full parental care of the minor by providing decent shelter, food, clothing, medical care and love in line with Article 53 of the Constitution.

BIOLOGICAL FATHER

She further claims that Mr Mandago is the biological father of the Form One boy and his immense wealth and means are enough to cater for the minor.

The woman is demanding Sh9 million as shelter that she claims the governor promised her and their son before abandoning them.

She says he had promised to build her a house at Elgon View Estate in Eldoret Town.

She is also demanding a further Sh60,000 monthly for food, Sh15,000 for clothing, Sh10,000 for entertainment per holiday, Sh56,000 per year for school fees, Sh900,000 for a car, Sh100,000 for car maintenance and Sh86,597 for medical expenses.

Ms Maina states that the county boss has reneged on the promise and that the minor is currently living with her at her parents’ home.

In her supportive affidavit, Ms Maina says the defendant chased her from the home they shared in August 2002, leaving the minor destitute.

“The respondent then remarried and abdicated his responsibilities and has totally neglected me and the boy,” reads Ms Maina’s submission.

Eldoret Principal Magistrate Mary Njagi certified the matter as urgent and fixed a hearing date for February 23.

The governor has been served with the application.
