In a long Facebook post on Monday 23, the former Nairobi governor vowed not to give even a shilling to a woman accusing her of being fond of using children to blackmail people, something he said he will not allow.
“Hiyo part ya kutoanishwa pesa life na kuenda kudunda 24/7 ndio hatutaelewana ata kidogo na site hata bob. ( That plan of extorting money and using it to drink 24/7 is what I will not allow, and I will not give out even one shilling)” Sonko said in a statement on Facebook.
While Sonko ruled out paying for child support, he told the woman to also give him the child to take care of her necessities.
“Just like Jesus said, “let children come to me…” Am kindly asking the lady alleging that she has my 15 years old kid to bring the kid to me,
“I’ll give the kid the best of what life has to offer. My family keeps on growing bigger day in and day out, I feel happy and blessed adopting orphans, street families, and neglected kids in my home,” he said.
However, the flamboyant politicians did not deny or accept that child was his.
On Monday, May 23, reports emerged that a woman claiming to be former Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko’s girlfriend had sued the flamboyant politician demanding monthly upkeep of KSh 448,450.
According to court documents filed at the magistrate court in Ngong on Monday, May 23, the woman now wants the Mombasa gubernatorial hopeful compelled to pay school fees of KSh 86,000.
She is further demanding another KSh 30,450 to cater for school-related expenses and uniforms and provide medical cover and upkeep for the girl.
Through lawyer Dan Okemwa, the woman whose identity has been withheld for the minor’s dignity said her 15-year-old daughter, a form two student has not reported back to school since the term began.
