Makueni Senator Mutula Junior has found himself in a jinx after a woman accused him of abdicating his duties after fathering a child with her in 2013. The woman says they had agreed on a plan in which Mutula would provide a total of Kshs 260,000 monthly to cater for the daughter but has since abandoned them.
The lady is said to have taken the senator to court seeking maintenance for her three-year-old daughter. The lady identified as Victoria Ndunge claims that Senator Mutula is the biological father of her child.
In a suit filed in court, the estranged wife wants the Makueni County Senator to take full medical responsibility of the child, pay him Sh30,000 monthly entertainment allowance, Sh60,000 for food and take a Sh5 million education policy for the child.
In an agreement also reportedly provided by the woman, the senator was to pay Ndunge Sh15,000 for transport, Sh10,000 for water and electricity, Sh8,500 for a nanny and Sh6,000 for a house help.
“We had a relationship with Kilonzo between 2012 and 2013 and had the child in May 2013, but we broke up thereafter. He used to provide for us for a few months, but he has now totally abandoned us and refused to cater for his child,” Ndunge said through her lawyer Muriu, Mungai and Company Advocates.
She accuses Mutula Jr of failing to stick to an agreement they made after their separation that he would provide for the child’s upkeep.
Ndunge who now lives in Karen suburbs in Nairobi wants a court order to be issued, allowing her to have custody of the child until she turns 18 and for Mutula to provide for her upkeep until she reaches that age.
Accusations that the Senator has rubbished as cheap politics meant to taint his name in the public eye.
