Nakuru - A Nakuru mother has sued her 28-year-old daughter for abandoning her two children.
Celina Chebet was arraigned in a children's court in Nakuru charged with abandoning her two children after her mother filed a complaint with the County children’s department.
Chebet allegedly abandoned the children, aged one and three years to go and look for a job.
She denied the charges saying that she left them with her mother as she was trying to look for work to raise money for their upkeep.

She said her family was too poor to take care of the children and pleaded with the court to allow her to continue looking for a job.
The case was filed before the Children Department in Nakuru by Chebet’s mother.
She said she was too sick to fend for the children and wanted her daughter to look after them.
The court adjourned the case and ordered for the case to be mentioned on May 22 when it will issue further directions.
