Chief Justice David Maraga has spoken for the first time since a woman by the name Mary Kwamboka claimed that she has a child with him and he does not want to offer child support. Maraga dismissed claims that he has sired a child with the woman out of the wedlock.
Through his lawyer Danstan Omari, the soft soken Chief Justice has refuted the claims terming the allegation as malicious. He said on Tuesday that the birth certificate alleged to be that of his ‘daughter’ is fake.
“We have had a perusal and due diligence of the annexures that have been filed to accompany this. For those who have access to the birth certificate.. there is no registrar known as Shamwata in the whole country nor has there been an officer with the name N.P Otieno,” Omari said in a statement.
Mr. Omari retaliated that, there has been pressure for the chief justice to resign from his position before his terms conclude.

Although Chief Justice’s office is located at the Supreme court, Miss Kwamboka went to the Milimani court, shouted at the top of her voice, and created a scene attracting a huge crowd.
Kwamboka screamed, “Nimechoka na hii story, mbona mnanizungusha na hii story kila wakati..” (I’m tired of all this… why are you taking me round in circles?)
“Maraga amekataa kugaramia mtoto wake… anataka mimi nimgaramie mimi mwenyewe.” (Maraga has refused to take care of his child. He wants me to take care of the child by myself.)
She also claimed that she met Maraga way back in 2013 and had a relationship affair with him.
“I now have a six-year-old daughter. I have the documents and have been filing cases here. He was summoned by the children’s department but he refused to come,” Kwamboka said.
Disputing the claims, lawyer Omari said that, “The CJ is an elder of the SDA Church. The DPP should get to the root of it. We are not worried about the girl but more about who is behind it,”.
