A woman who had initially filed a child support and maintenance against former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has withdrawn the case.
In an affidavit, the lady claimed that two women who live in Mombasa had approached her, and offered Ksh 1 million to tarnish Sonko’s image.
The lady further confirmed that the two ladies had paid her Ksh 240,000.
“…. I have since searched my soul on the matter, considered the suit against the defendant and I now wish to unconditionally withdraw both the chamber summons applications and suit both dated 12th May 2022 and further wish to extend my unreserved apologies to the Plaintiff herein and to this Honourable Court,” part of the affidavit reads.
In May 2022, the lady filled a case seeking a monthly maintenance of Ksh. 448,450 saying that child is in form two.
The money was to cover expenses such as food and shopping, rent, security clothing, housekeeping, entertainment, medical coverage, education, and utilities.
“Mr. Sonko and I are the biological parents of the minor herein,” the court papers, from the case filed at the Senior Principal Magistrate at Ngong read.
“Mr. Sonko has always been defiant and brazen to accept responsibility and assist me with the maintenance of the minor. He has over the years wilfully withdrawn support towards the maintenance of the minor thus denying her what is rightfully hers and forcing me to take full responsibility for the minor,” court papers started.
