The Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Forestry ministry, Soipan Tuya, is in court over child support. Soipan is demanding children support money from his ex husband whom she accuses of being a deadbeat father.
According to available sources, the CS was married to Stephen Kudate who is said to be a former MCA in Narok county. Tuya claims that Kudate has been treating her two children and their house worker with cruelty.
Soipan now wants the court to compel the estranged husband to pay ksh. 525,000. Out of this money, ksh. 200,000 is for the kids’ entertainment and she wants Kudate to pay 50% of this entertainment which is ksh. 100,000 per month. Also, another ksh. 200,000 is supposed to cater for the children’s maibtainance and so he is supposed to pay another ksh. 100,000 monthly.
However, Kudate has asked her to present the children for a paternity test but the CS is apparently not willing to go through that process a d she insists the children were fathered by the former Maji Moto MCA Mr. Stephen Kudate.
Ms. Soipan has also asked the court to bar Mr. Kudate from accessing her three homes as she is living in fear that the former MCA can plan to interfere with her or the case if allowed to access the homes.
