Collins Toroitich, the grandson of former President Daniel Arap Moi has been sued by his former wife for child maintenance.
Toroitich is accused of neglecting his two children, a boy and a girl aged 9 and 11, after separating from their mother Gladys Jeruto Tagi.
The two reportedly got married in 2008 and had two children together before divorcing four years later in 2o11.
In the suit filed before Principal Magistrate Benjamin Limo, Jeruto, a politician, says she is unable to cater for the children after their father abandoned his parental responsibilities.
"I am currently unable to provide for the children alone as the needs are so many and would need to be assisted," Jeruto says in court documents.
She wants the court to compel Toroitich to pay her Sh1 million every month as child upkeep.
Jeruto, who unsuccessfully contested for the Koibatek Ward Representative seat, told the court that attempts to get in contact with Toroitich have been fruitless.
Toroitich, a businessman, is the son of the late Jonathan Moi, the first-born son of the late President Moi.
