The Kimilili legislator has however dismissed the remarks stating that the child in question is his daughter and they were having tea at Java.
“That’s my daughter and I was taking tea at java,” he stated.
I have watched this Video several times of someone who looks like Didmus Barasa being served a drink by a young gal. I don't know what they are drinking. But from my observation if that's Didmus Barasa then he must clear the air. Too much speculation going on.. pic.twitter.com/F5EdBnkPMw

The lawmaker has been making headlines recently and is currently caught up in a court case for assaulting a local contractor.
Earlier this month, Steve Masinde popularly known as Steve Kay the contractor allegedly assaulted by Barasa claimed foul play in his trial.
Steve Kay complained of intimidation and sabotage from the Kimilili MP who had hired a team of lawyers to defend him in the ongoing case. He called on relevant authorities to ensure a free and fair trial for justice to be served.
“I tried raising complaints with the magistrate that my lawyer was absent as he was in Nairobi and that she should allow me more time but she turned me down,” he lamented.
