Senator Ledama Olekina Denies Knowing Woman Suing Him for Child Support

Senator Ledama Olekina denied knowing a lady who is suing him for child support.

Ledama informed the court through his attorney, Kethi Kilonzo, that he does not know who Esther Wanjiru Gatume is and has never seen her.

“I do not know the child. It is not true that I had any relations with the woman,” Ledama remarked.

The first-term senator is asking the court to order a DNA test to determine the child’s paternity.

Senator Ledama was sued by Wanjiru in November of last year, seeking Sh350, 000 in monthly child support.

She accused the senator of abandoning his duties to provide for the kid, who is his biological son, in a suit filed in Milimani law courts.

She urged the court to order Ledama to pay Sh200, 000 in interim child support while the case is heard and decided.

Senator Ledama and the applicant met in September 2019 and had an intimate connection, resulting to the birth of the kid in October 2020, according to the application. Wanjiru alleges that the senator cut off connection with her as soon as she told him she was pregnant with his child.

“When I conceived and realized I was pregnant, I immediately informed the respondent that he was going to be a father. But to my dismay and utter shock the respondents cut off communication with me,” Wanjiru claims in court papers.

“I was left with no other choice but to settle all the cost and bills during the pregnancy, scans, birthing without any involvement or assistance of the respondent.”

She goes on to say that after alerting Olekina of the child’s birth and demanding that he take responsibility, he has remained mute.

She claims that the respondent is a member of parliament as well as a successful businessman with a consistent salary and ample resources to support the minor. In the court documents, she included health fees and receipts.
