How Busia County  Governor Sospeter Ojamong dumped me and my kids

A mother of twins was in court this week to enforce a court order requiring the Bosnia County Governor Sospeter Ojamong pays sh 40,000 upkeep of his two children he sired out of wedlock.

Esther Mayieka claims the Busia Governor is unable to honour the court’s decision to pay the monthly upkeep and now wants the courts at Nairobi Milimani to enforce the order.

The children’s court ordered Mr Ojamong to pay the single mother the amounts to take care of the children ten years ago.

“Since then it has been a game. He sends what he wants. He threatens me. I have text messages that shows that,” says Mayieka.

Mayieka says that Mr Ojamong has told him that she can’t take her anywhere because ‘he is too powerful’.

She says that two years ago, she filed a court case to enforce the order but the family prevailed upon her to withdraw it.

“This time around they will not succeed. The kids are now ten years,” says Mayieka.

Earlier,The court was informed that the governor is a man of means but had refused to take up his responsibilities. Mayieka claimed that she cohabited with the governor from 2003, after which they got two children together. The boys were born in March 2004.   She claimed Ojaamong dumped her, moved out of the house they were living in together and tool  away  all the household goods. After moving out of the house, Ojaamong provided upkeep inconsistently until 2007 when he stopped.
