A Kenyan man whose whereabouts are unknown has been served by an American court through a local daily in what could be a case of a deadbeat father.

The suit was brought by the Child Protective Services in the Tallapoosa County Department of Human Resources in the state.

In a notice published in one of the dailies, the judge says the court has failed to locate Akumu through the normal processes of law to serve him with the petition because his whereabouts are unknown.

The notice says the children-Daimond Alayiah, Caldwell and Zayia Annette Caldwell were born during the pendency of Akumu’s marriage to an unnamed woman, suggesting that they could have since divorced.

Akumu has two weeks to respond to the suit or have the petition determined without his input.

In the publication, James D. Akumu is accused of not making his whereabouts known to the petitioner regarding the termination of his parental rights hence the move to have him served via a local publication.

“The State of Alabama, Tallapoosa County Department of Human Resources, Child Protective Services, has filed a petition against you regarding the termination of your parental rights as to the minor children, who are minors, and were born during the marriage of the parents,” states the notice,

Akumu has also been asked to serve his answer upon the Clerk of the Juvenile Court 395 Lee Street, Alexander City, Alabama 35010, the USA within 14 days of the last date of publication of the notice.

At the same time, the defendant has been ordered to personally appear in the Juvenile Court of Tallapoosa County, Alabama for the final hearing on the petition of Termination of Parental Rights on the 9th of November 2022 at 1:30pm
