A tough week for Itumbi as, after the Bomas embarrassment, DNA results now show he is child’s father

Published

on

Mr Dennis Itumbi, the embattled Innovation, Digital and Diaspora Communication Director in the Office of the President, has had a rough week.

Even before the news of his being embarrassed at the BBI event held at the Bomas oof Kenya died down, a magistrate ordered him to start paying upkeep for a child he fathered but was in denial about it.

The children’s court has directed Mr Itumbi, who also leads Deputy President William Ruto’s social media brigade, to pay the woman interim maintenance order of Sh20,000 monthly, pending hearing and determination of the case.

This was after results of a DNA test, which Mr Itumbi had demanded should be conducted, returned the verdict that he is the father of the baby girl.

The court also allowed the parties to try and reach an out-of-court settlement on the matter.

OUT-OF-COURT DEAL

The mother of the child, through family law advocate Enricah Dulo, says among their demands in the proposed out-of-court settlement deal is Sh50,000 monthly maintenance, a medical cover and school fees when minor starts school.

“We want a copy of his national identity card so that his name can be included in the minor’s certificate of birth, and we will also be asking him to set up a trust for the minor, because the baby girl is his only known child,” lawyer Dulo.

The mother had filed the case claiming Mr Itumbi deserted the child from birth and has refused to provide any form of support, knowing fully well that she is an orphan and had to stop working before giving birth.

She is also without any form of maternity pay, and despite making several attempts to hold a meeting with him, Mr Itumbi only found it fit to send a friend instead of coming in person, or sending an advocate.

CUSTODY

Mr Itumbi should also be granted reasonable access to the child, but the mother be granted actual and legal custody of the minor, the court directed.

Mr Itumbi and the woman dated for almost a year, between January and August 2018, before the relationship abruptly ended.

“He ended the relationship sometime in August 2018 when the lady informed him that she was pregnant with his child. She successfully delivered a female child on June 14, this year,” lawyer Dulo in court papers.

The case will be mentioned on December 18 to get feedback on the out-of-court attempt.

Should they fail to agree, hearing will resume next year.

Published

Former Tusker project fame participant Alvan Gatitu has thanked Kenyans for coming to his aid, during a difficult moment in his life.

This was after he shared a video of himself narrating how he had been kicked out of his house.

Taking to his social media account Alvan wrote,

‘when you start your day one way and end up in a different place.

Thankful from the bottom of my heart, God bless you.

Humanity is still alive.’

Speaking during an interview on NTV Alvan said he has fought anxiety attacks before.

‘I have suffered anxiety attacks before.

One thing I promised myself is that I would never be vulnerable enough to speak about where I am in life.

I was trying to hold a fallacy that was hurting me.’

Alvan added,

‘When I woke up in that guard’s booth,I knew I was done trying to  show that am alright.

I had reached out for help and nothing was coming through.

I decided to speak the reality of my situation.’

Kenyans heard his cries and contributed towards his welfare.

It was once again a chance for Kenyans to prove that umoja ni nguvu.

Truth be told, many people are suffering it’s just that they do not have the guts to share like Alvan did.

It’s a high time people normalized the idea of speaking out and sharing their problems.
