Kenyan singer illegally keeping son in Nairobi, says London court

Published

on

A Kenyan singer is illegally keeping his child in Nairobi and has refused to return the minor to his British mother in the United Kingdom, a London court ruled on Thursday.

For the first time since the case started, the court allowed journalists to publish the name of Mr Shiv Singh Benawra, 29, who is said to be living with the son in Nairobi.

The court argued this will compel the father, considered a public figure, to return the boy to the mother.

Mr Benawra who doubles up as an actor has been engaged in a court case with Ms Charlotte Morris since they separated in 2015.

NO RESPONSE

On Friday, Mr Benawra promised Nairobi News a response but failed to do so by publishing time.

“You want me to comment on personal issues? Let me call back in a few,” he said before hanging up.

Justice Lieven described Mr Benawra as a public figure, a singer, actor and model who had just failed to comply with High Court orders.

Mr Benawra took the child after he agreed with the mother in April 2016 and was supposed to have taken him back to the UK by June 2016, which has never happened.

The court said the son’s continued stay in Nairobi is a breach of orders.

PUBLIC CRITICISM

Ms Morris had told the court that public criticism would push the man to comply with the court orders and ensure  the baby is taken back to her.

The Judge said that publicizing the matter would see the boy finally get re-united with the mother.

‘The father has not complied with High Court orders and has not returned the child to the UK,’ said the judge in a statement.

The statement added: ‘The mother believes that if publicity restrictions are lifted, the father is likely to return the child to the UK because he is a public figure who would not want to jeopardise his status and career through the inevitable public criticism and the disapproval of followers, fans and colleagues.’

“I was just minding my own business and someone hints about it then I’m like “no” then the next day I see it in the blogs and a day after, they go live. Everything was happening so fast and the fact he never told me, hurt so bad! In fact the day before I found out, I was with him sitted here, but he never told me a word.

BY KEVIN KOECH

Google is celebrating Mekatilili wa Menza, with a doodle of the Kenyan freedom fighter made visible on its search engine platform on Sunday.

Known for inspiring the Giriama people to resist colonial rule, circa 1900, Mekatilili wa Menza is revered as one of the nation’s first Mau Mau fighters.

“The recognition of Mekatilili Menza by Google goes along way in reinforcing what we believe in as Kenya National Heroes Council and a country.

“We believe our Heroes deserve better. They have played their part in nation building. We must affirm them at all times so that we can inculcate the culture of Heroism; the culture of service.

“We shall ensure more of our female heroines are unearthed, highlighted and feted. Other than giving birth to many celebrated our women were at the fore front of our liberation, our struggles and our future remains solely in their hands.

“That is the spirit of the Kenya National Heroes Act,2014 and what we stand for as a Council,” said Amb. Yvonne Khamati-Yahaya, the CEO of the Kenya National Heroes Council.

Mekatilili wa Menza led the Giriama people in the early 20th century and is commemorated during the festivities of the traditional Malindi Cultural Festival, an annual celebration of local history and pride.

She was born in Matsara wa Tsatsu during the mid-19th century.

By the early 20th century, British colonial rule had threatened the sovereignty and freedom of the Giriama people with forced labor and taxation.

At a time when women’s power was limited within her society, Menza was compelled to organize her people against colonial control.

The Google Doodle artwork features a depiction of Menza leading the energetic kifudu dance that called so many to action.

The artist behind the Google doodle is Wanjira Kinyua who is based in Nairobi
