Collins Toroitich, the grandson of the late former President Daniel Arap Moi, has been accused of using delaying tactics in a child upkeep case.
The businessman was sued for allegedly neglecting his two children, aged 11 and nine.
The children’s mother Gladys Jeruto Tagi claims her former husband refused to take responsibility for the minors despite being a wealthy businessman.
Last week, Toroitich demanded DNA tests to confirm the paternity of the two kids, saying that he is ready to take responsibility if he is found to be their biological father.
He was directed by the court to file a formal application requesting the orders but he is yet to file the submissions.
On Tuesday, Jeruto’s lawyer David Mongeri told the court that the respondent was employing delay tactics at the expense of the children’s wellbeing, accusing him of having a ‘don’t care attitude’. The attorney asked the court to proceed to make a judgment on the matter.
Senior Resident Magistrate Benjamin Limo directed the parties to serve and file their submissions before the matter is determined.
In the suit, Jeruto is seeking Sh1 million per month to cater for food, rent, education, entertainment, and maintenance.
The two reportedly got married in 2008 and had two children together before divorcing four years later in 2011.
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 is the son of the late Jonathan Moi, the first-born son of the late President Moi.
