Dennis Itumbi ordered to pay child support

Embattled Innovation, Digital and Diaspora Communication Director in the Office of the President Dennis Itumbi has been ordered to pay monthly child support.

The judge directed Itumbi to pay Ksh20,000 monthly for a child he fathered before the case is heard and determined.

Itumbi had asked for a DNA test, which came back and ascertained he is the father of the child.

The mother had filed the case claiming Mr Itumbi deserted the child from birth and has refused to provide any form of support.

According to the plaintiff, Itumbi and her were in a relationship between January and August 2018.

Itumbi granted access to child

He ended the relationship sometime in August 2018 when the lady informed him that she was pregnant with his child,"

"She successfully delivered a female child on June 14, this year,” lawyer Enricah Dulo said in court papers.

The children's court also gave Mr Itumbi reasonable access to the child, but the mother was granted actual and legal custody of the minor.

Lawyer Dulo asked the court to direct Itumbi to provide a copy of his ID so that his name can be included in the minor’s certificate of birth.

The court also allowed the parties to try and reach an out-of-court settlement on the matter.
