Facebook page exposes 'absconding' Kenyan fathers

12 September 2014, 19:28 Dennis Masinde

Nairobi - A Facebook page exposing 'absconding' Kenyan fathers is making waves, with a big following to boot.

The page, called 'Dead Beat Kenya' has grown exponentially since its launch and seeks to expose those fathers that do not want to take charge of their children.

Currently with just over 74,500 members, the group has exposed the high and mighty already, the most high profile being rapper Prezzo, who was 'plundered' by former wife Daisy Kiplangat for not offering support for their young daughter.

Many others too have done the same, with their men facing embarrassment from not fulfilling their duties.

The question thus far though has also been, where are the women who abscond?
