A 21-year-old man wants a Nairobi court  to compel Kieni MP Kanini Kega to recognise him as his son.

Mr Dennis Gitahi Wanjiru says he has tried reaching the MP for assistance without success and has now filed the case  at the Children’s Court in Nairobi. It is not clear why he filed the matter at the children’s court considering his age.

GRANDMOTHER

In a sworn affidavit, Gitahi states that his mother, Florence Wanjiru, who died in 2004, had an affair with the MP.

” My mother left me under the care of my grandmother at Watuka Village in Kieni Constituency,” he deposes.

He says he had been in touch with the MP  who promised to take him through school but reneged.

“I knows the MP well and efforts to reach him have been futile, forcing me to move to court,” says Gitahi.

In the suit, Mr Gitahi seeks recognised and wants to be treated equally with Mr Kega’s other children.

He accuses the MP of abdicating his parental duties and showing lack of interest in his life.

Kanini Kega, whose real is James Mathenge, was born on 31 October 1972 in Watuka village, Kieni, Nyeri County. He is a Kenyan member of Paliament (MP) representing Kieni constituency in Nyeri county. He is a member of The National Alliance and a coalition member of Jubilee Alliance

Mathenge acquired his nickname Kanini Kega in 1998 When he first vied for the Democratic Party nominations after the death of Munene Kairu. At that time he was 26 years old. Other leaders dismissed him as “a beardless man with nothing to offer on the political table.” Over the years, the people of Kieni came to know him as Kanini Kega (young but nice) probably because he was the youngest but most noble politician in the political scene in the area.

Who is Kanini Kega?
