Chief Justice David Maraga has responded to claims that he fathered the daughter of a woman who caused drama at the Milimani Law Courts on Tuesday.
Through his lawyer Danstan Omari, Maraga stated that he does not know the woman and did not sire the alleged 6-year-old girl.
Omari noted that the documents the woman brought to court, including the child’s birth certificate, were fake and do not warrant a response.
He added that the woman, Mary Kwamboka Onyancha, only presented the papers in court for assessment but did not file a child support case after she was unable to pay the filing fee as required.
“That birth certificate is generated, it is not a document to be relied on,” Omari said. “If this is aimed at assassinating the character of the Chief Justice, it is our position we shall be calling on the DPP and all relevant arms of government to get to the root course of this fraud,’’ he added.
Speaking to journalists, the woman said they had been raising the child together until January this year when Maraga stopped supporting her.
As a result, Kwamboka said she reported the matter at Makadara children’s department but Maraga refused to honor summons. She added that Maraga has frustrated her attempts to file a child maintenance suit in the court.
She claimed that she met CJ Maraga in 2013 at a church function and got into a romantic relationship with him thereafter. She later got pregnant and gave birth to Maraga’s daughter in 2014.
Kwamboka was demanding over Sh160,000 from Maraga in child support payment.
