The application has been filed by Nairobi lawyer Gitobu Imanyara and certified as urgent and demands parental responsibility from the DP as enshrined in the Constitution.

Chemutai maintains that she has no income to sustain the child and is therefore in need of the DP’s help.

Mr Ruto, who prides himself as a family man, is married to Rachel Ruto and has six children including an adopted daughter.
