DNA results have confirmed that Former President Daniel Moi’s grandson Mr Colins Kibet is the biological father of children of his ex-wife Gladys Jeruto.
The DNA results that was presented before a Nakuru court that was conducted at Lancet Kenya Laboratories in Nakuru indicated that Mr Kibet is the biological father of the two minors aged 11 and 9 with the probability of 99.9%.
The DNA was conducted after Mr Kibet disputed the paternity of the two minors and sought DNA test after he was sued by his ex-wife over children support.
Ms Jeruto sued her ex-husband April this year at a Nakuru court and accused him of negligence and abandoning his fatherly responsibilities.
The report read that the children exhibit a compatible obligatory paternal allelic profile with that of Mr Kibet.
Kibet’s ex-wife was forced to move to court after her ex-husband neglected his paternal duties.
She told the court that Kibet never took any paternal responsibility despite being a well-off businessman.
“I am currently unable to provide for the children alone as the needs are so many and would need to be assisted,” she stated.
She added that efforts to reach her ex-husband were unsuccessful arguing that the late President’s grandson might have blocked her calls.
The couple were married for four year and blessed with two children a boy and a girl before separating in 2012.
Ms Jeruto told the court that she needs shillings one million monthly for her children’s basic needs, school fees, and other upkeep needs.
Mr Kibet had questioned the paternity of the children and sought a DNA test in order to confirm if he was the father of the minors or not.
The accused had also been accused of not obeying court orders in the suit by skipping several court proceedings. However he present himself for extraction of NDA sample for the DNA analysis.
Senior Resident Magistrate, Benjamin Limo, released Kibet on a Ksh100, 000 bond on contempt of court charges for not apppearing in court severally.
