KENNETH MARENDE says he is DEAD BROKE and refuses to pay Sh 475,000 to a woman he sired a child with – I sincerely have NO MONEY!
Thursday February 27, 2014 – Former Speaker of the National Assembly, Kenneth Marende, has refused to pay an upkeep of Sh457, 000 for a child he sired with a Nairobi woman four years ago.
In an application filed by the woman’s lawyer, Njagi Nyaboke, the woman pleaded with the court to compel Marende to pay the money in the next one month.
“The respondent has not complied with the orders your honour. I pray to be allowed to file another application on the date compelling him to do so,” the lawyer said.
Milimani Principal Magistrate, F Munyi, extended the orders to April 9 to give Marende more time to pay Jennifer Nkowua Sh180, 000 for school fees and related expenses, Sh90, 000 for rent and Sh60, 000 for clothing.
The former Speaker was last week ordered to pay Sh100, 000 for entertainment, Sh12, 000 for the caregiver, Sh10, 000 for electricity and Sh5, 000 for water.
But through his lawyer, Marende said he cannot be able to pay such an amount because currently, he is jobless.
