Sonko paternity case postponed

15 October 2014, 22:01

Kwale - The paternity case between Nairobi senator Mike Mbuvi and his estrange wife Josephine Thuku has been postponed to 29 October this year.

Resident Magistrate Christine Njagi supposed to handle the case is out of Kwale for other official duties and therefore the case could not be heard.

The DNA test was done at Ampathy health center in Mombasa.

The court was yesterday supposed to make public DNA test results for the two clarifying if Mbuvi is the biological father of the second child who Josephine has claims he is his father.

Court had ordered the two to have a DNA test which was Sonko met the cost.

The court also earlier had ordered Sonko to continue paying school fees for the two children which her estrange wife claims he is the biological father until a DNA test is done.

Thuku want the senator to pay Sh140,000 maintenance for the two children she claimed they sired with him but Sonko has maintained he only sired the first child with her.

Sonko is represented by lawyer Lydia Kwamboka while Josephine is represented by lawyer Leonard Chimaka.

The senator has told the court severally that the complainant can pick food stuff from Nakumatt Nyali for the two minors.

Lawyer Kwamboka said that the issue of food provision is purely for the children and not the mother and so his client has no problem with that since the cost is paid monthly.

“The applicant can pick food anytime from there she will not be embarrassed because that is the fear I can see she has,” said Kwamboka.

But Thuku told the court that she had not been informed on the issue.

The flamboyant senator has made it clear that he will not provide anything in terms of cash but would support his family.
