In a video that was aired on NTV, the elder of the three children is heard saying ‘we don’t want her!’
The younger one was also heard saying that “huyo sio mama yetu” referring to, Grace Wachira a journalist said to work for Inooro TV, a vernacular media house in the country.
Speaking to the media, their father explained that the children refused to go with their mother for apparently abandoning them for nearly three years.
“The children have rejected their mum because she neglected them when they were young. She went to court and got a court order. I have brought the children as I was told and the kids have rejected their mum.
“The last born was left when she was suckling. I have raised them singlehandedly and now she has a court order, she was supposed to take them but they have refused and created a scene,” said the husband.
According to their father, the journalist has been a layabout adding that the she left them at the beginning of 2018 and he was left with no option but to take care of the children for over two years.
“We want our dad, she is not our mum, she is called Grace Wachira. You work with her at Inooro. We don’t even want to listen to her,” said the eldest son.
“I don’t have an option, I’ll just go back to court and tell the magistrate how they reacted. I tried to plead with her and wrote her messages and told her to come to rebond with the kids but she refused.
I have evidence of the messages. Because the matter is in court, I don’t want to go into details let the court decide,” noted the husband.
