Househelp Turned Baby Mama, Drags Senator To Court Over Child Support

A former house girl, who is now the baby mama of Kenyan
senator, Kimani Wamatangi, has taken him to court over neglect of their
10-year-old child. 

According to Winfred Wangui Kimani, the senator has only seen their
child twice: “When she was two-month-old and he gave me $69.37; and
towards the end of 2007, when he was vying for a parliamentary seat,”
reports Standard Media.

She further claimed that “He came home to see my mother with $198.20 and promised to pay for his daughter’s upkeep.”

She says that since the birth of their child on April 23, 2007,
Wamatangi has only sent $693 through M-Pesa and that he has refused to
pay $743 monthly upkeep.

medical care fee and $198.20 in clothing and miscellaneous expenses. The
total expenses come to $743.”
