She’s seeking the courts intervention to compel the Deputy President to provide basic amenities for the child like food, healthcare and education as she is not employed and she has no source of income.
According to the woman, DP Ruto assured her that he would take full responsibility for their daughter and provide for her, but he has not fulfilled his promise since becoming the deputy president Citizen Digital first reported.
“Since becoming the Deputy President the defendant stopped sending us money [unless] he is threatened with court, and when he does send any money the payment is irregular and inadequate and hence the necessity of these proceedings,” argued the petitioner.
