Igembe Central Member of Parliament Cyprian Kubai Kiringo has been ordered to clear the outstanding school fees amounting to over Sh320, 000 for a child whom he sired outside his marriage.
Milimani Children’s court magistrate David Kuto said that the earlier order issued against the MP has not been fully complied with.
He said failure to obey the order, the warrant of arrest issued by the court should be enforced.
Mr Kuto said that, the child should remain in the school he has chosen and the legislator should forthwith desist from demanding change of the learning institution for the child.
As the schools are having opened, the lady wants the legislator to pay fees for the child to ensure his son’s smooth learning.
The aggrieved woman through her lawyer Jane Nyaboke, told the court that MP has abused the court process by making several application seeking to set aside the warrant of arrest issued against him.
“The application made to this court has not been disclosed to us as applicant and they have been taken to different court” the lawyer told the court. The warrant can only be set a side after the school fees have been paid has ordered.
Igembe Central Member of Parliament and his former girl friend are engaged in bitter exchange over the upkeep of a child they sired together.
As the schools are about to open, the lady wants the legislator to pay fees for the child.
“It’s prudent that the MP do honor the court’s order requiring him to pay the school fees.
Nyaboke told trial magistrate David Kuto that the MP has in the application before court sought the kid to be transferred from his current school to another.
The lawyer said there is no problem for the child to study at his current school which has provided transport and the kid is comfortable there.
The children’s court has already entered judgment against him for SH 325,864 which keeps on attracting interest.
The child’s mother obtained the decree on 11 February 2014 after the legislator declined to defend the suit brought against him over neglect of the kid.
The mother’s lawyer has submitted to court that the legislator has become evasive leading the child being chased from school due non payment of fees.
.The lawyer further submitted that, the mother cannot return the child to the former school where there is an outstanding substantial fee which has not been paid.
There are orders in placed to have the Mp under go DNA test issued by the court and the same was supposed to have been done on 17 September 2013, but the father failed to avail himself at hospital.
The court directed that the matter be mentioned on 21 January to conform compliance of the orders of the court.
