Moi’s grandson in court over child support neglect

Former President the late Daniel Arap Moi’s grandson is facing contempt of court charges after his ex-wife accused him of disregarding orders to support his two children’s needs.

Nakuru Principal Magistrate Kipkurui Kibellion has directed that Collins Kibet Toroitich Moi shows cause as to why he should not be punished for disobeying the orders.

In the orders issued on June 22, 2022, the court directed that Moi caters for the children’s school fees, medical and entertainment expenses to the tune of Sh 1.5 million per year.

However, his ex-wife, Gladys Jeruto Tagi has moved back to court to complain of Mr Moi’s actions of disregarding the orders.

Tagi claims her parental partner has neglected his responsibilities and left it all to her.

She claims to have single-handedly catered for the expenses after Moi failed to act.

The court heard that Tagi has been the one paying the school fees and taking care of the minors’ medical and entertainment expenses which, she claims has been causing her much loss as well as financial strain.

“Despite being aware of his parental responsibilities, the respondent has failed, neglected, ignored and refused to pay school fees and cater for school-related expenses together with the entertainment needs as ordered by the court, thus forcing the plaintiff to cater for those needs in addition to the responsibilities allocated to her,” stated Ms Tagi in her application.

She claims to have spent a total of Sh 2.8 million on the children since June 2, 2022, when the court issued the order.

According to the documents filed in court, Ms Tagi has spent Sh 1.2 million on the children’s education, Sh 600,000 on medical expenses and Sh 1 million on their entertainment for close to two years.

The woman claims the children are yet to report to school since she is no longer able to raise the required fees and other school-related expenses.

She now wants Moi compelled to refund the money and be directed to play his role as a father.

She further wants the father of her children to be held in contempt of court and be summoned to appear in court to explain why he should not be punished.

“The plaintiff prays that the court be pleased to grant orders for the arrest and detention of Collins Kibet Toroitich Moi cited above in prison for a period not exceeding six months for contempt of court orders,” she states.

Principal magistrate Benjamin Limo in his judgment on June 2, 2022, established that Ms Tagi who filed the case in April 2021 had proved that Mr Collins Kibet Moi had neglected his two children aged 11 and nine for over 10 years.

He ordered the Moi’s scion to take full responsibility for the children’s education and medical insurance and meet part of their entertainment expenses.

Ms Tagi in her petition had sought to have Mr Moi ordered to pay Sh 200,000 per term for the children’s education, Sh 200,000 for their annual medical cover and Sh 100,000 for monthly entertainment costs.

She further sought Sh 100,000 for food, Sh150,000 for upkeep, Sh 100,000 for clothing, Sh100,000 for rent and Sh 50,000 for house help.

The court however directed that Mr Kibet caters for the minors’ education and medical expenses and then share the entertainment cost with Ms Tagi.

“The defendant shall pay school fees and also take care of the medical needs (via medical cover). the parties shall share in the provision of entertainment needs of the minors,” ruled Mr Limo.

The mother was directed to take care of the rest of the needs.

According to Ms Tagi, Mr Moi had abandoned her children in 2012 leaving all their responsibilities to her.

She told the court that they lived together for four years between 2008 and 2012 where they were blessed with the two minors.

Ms Tagi complained that the burden of raising the children alone was overwhelming and needed the co-parent to also shoulder part of it adding that she had no stable source of income.

The attempt by Moi to deny the children was unsuccessful after a DNA test that was sanctioned by the court revealed that he was their biological father.

Having been cornered by the evidence, Mr Moi ceded ground and offered to provide NHIF cover to the children after claiming to be broke.

The case will be mentioned on February 21.
