Labour and Social Protection Principal Secretary Nelson Marwa is in trouble.
This is following claims of child neglect from a Kitale woman.
The 27-year-old woman has now filed a suit in a Kitale court to compel the PS to pay for the minor’s upkeep.
According to the woman, Marwa has neglected his role as a father to their one-year-old baby girl.
In her court documents, she claims the PS only settled a Sh50,000 hospital bill before he became a dead beat father.
On his part, the former no nonsense Mombasa County Commissioner disputed the claims saying he has no prior knowledge of the woman.

Further, he stated that he has never supported the woman financially or paid the alleged hospital bill.
“At no time have I supported the plaintiff or the alleged child,” Marwa stated in court papers.
Following Marwa’s response, the court has now directed that the two undergo a DNA test to determine the paternity of the child.
The hearings are set to begin in April 23.
