Mike Sonko responds to woman demanding child support
Mombasa Gubernatorial Candidate Mike Sonko has distanced himself from claims that he fathered a 15-year-old child with another woman and refused to pay child support.
Sharing his sentiments in a Twitter thread, the former Nairobi Governor requested that the kid's mother hand over the child for him to raise. Sonko added that the said woman recently lost custody over her two other children to her ex-boyfriend.
"Ati Sonko in trouble as woman takes him to court over child upkeep. Trouble gani sasa? Just like Jesus said "let children come to me..." Am kindly asking the lady alleging that she has my 15 years old kid to bring the kid to me," Sonko tweeted.
According to Sonko, the unidentified woman has formed a habit of using her children to extort money from men.
"This girl uses the kids for blackmail so that she is given money to go clubbing 24/7. I'll give the kid the best of what life has to offer. My family keeps on growing bigger day in day out, I feel happy and blessed adopting orphans, street families and neglected kids in my home," said Sonko.
The flashy politician urged the woman and other ladies out there with children they cannot care for to hand them over to him instead of mistreating them.
