Embattled Innovation, Digital and Diaspora Communication Director in the Office of the President, Dennis Itumbi has been ordered to start paying child support after DNA evidence showed he is the child’s father.

The children’s court has directed Mr Itumbi, to pay the mother of his baby girl Sh20,000 monthly, pending hearing and determination of the case.

The child’s mother, through lawyer Enricah Dulo, has demanded Sh50,000 monthly maintenance, a medical cover and school fees when minor starts school in a proposed out-of-court settlement deal.

“We want a copy of his national identity card so that his name can be included in the minor’s certificate of birth, and we will also be asking him to set up a trust for the minor, because the baby girl is his only known child,” lawyer Dulo said.

On his Twitter account, Dennis seems to have taken responsibility in a tweet he posted acknowledging the kid.

Mr Itumbi and the woman dated between January and August 2018. “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,” Dulo stated in court papers.

The case will be heard on December 18 to get feedback on the out-of-court attempt.
