House of Grace Bishop David Muriithi has said he is willing to pay Sh10,000 in a case in which a woman sued him, saying he is the father of her child born out of wedlock. The man of God said that he can only afford to Shs. 10,000 for his son's monthly upkeep as he too depends on well-wishers to survive.
While Miriithi was replying an affidavit the cleric said that he had a short lived relationship on and off with the woman which ended in the year 2018 adding that as a responsible adult and for the best interest of the minor, he will take up reasonable parental responsiblity over the child whom the applicant claims to be his.
“When I met the applicant she was living in her own rented house with her other teenage child sired from a different relation where she paid her own rent,” his affidavit reads.
Muriithi argued that he was not aware that the woman was pregnant and she never disclosed to him that she was pregnant. He revealed that the woman kept the pregnancy secret, but often could complain about fibroids only to learn about the pregnancy after the relationship ended. “I called to say hello and she casually informed me that she was at St. Mary to deliver a baby which shocked me,” reads court papers.
Muriithi is now accusing the woman of using the child to extort money from him and also to frustrate him. He says he will pay the school fees for the child but the school the mother chose, Kiota School is too expensive and he will not afford it.
