• The child had a fever the day before and despite the mother insisting on taking her to the hospital, Kinyanjui refused.
City Lawyer Harrison Kinyanjui’s baby mama has moved to court seeking to exhume their late daughter’s remains arguing that there was foul play in her death.
In an application filed at the commercial court, Tabbyrose Wamwitha has accused Kinyanjui of being a freemason.
“The applicant herein believes that Harrison Kinyanjui practices and participates harmful religious practices known as free mason,” read court documents.
Through Lawyer Danstan Omari, the woman claims that their daughter died suddenly on October 2017 at the MP Shah Hospital at around 6.30 am after being rushed to the said hospital at around 4.00 am.
“The circumstances surrounding the deceased death would remain unraveled yet Wamwitha’s family has strong reasons to believe that there was foul play in the death of the minor,” Omari argues.
The child suffered from Down syndrome and heart complications prior to her death and she claims that the father was never supportive of the child’s medical condition.
According to court documents, the child had a fever the day before and despite the mother insisting on taking her to the hospital, Kinyanjui refused.
“The applicant forcefully took the infant to the hospital and the next morning at around 4 am and at 6.30 am the infant was pronounced dead,” she claims.
After the death of the infant, she says she suggested that the minor should be buried in Langata Cemetery or her land in Maai Mahiu after an autopsy had been done.
However, she alleges that unbeknown to her Kinyanjui changed the burial place to his property in Gatundu.
In his response to the application, Kinyanjui has opposed the exhumation of his late daughter as has been asked by the mother.
Kinyanjui’s best friend Lawyer Geoffrey Makome has sworn an affidavit vouching for his character saying he was a good father.
Makome says it’s not true that Kinyanjui never attended to the deceased infant as had been alleged by the wife.
“I know the said Tabbyrose Wamwitha as a disagreeable, abrasive and very aggressive and unreasonable woman, show would have totally wreaked havoc at both Kinyanjui’s office and farm were any such burial done secretly,” Makome said.
Wamwitha’s elder sister Anne Wangeci has also supported Kinyanjui telling the court not to allow the exhumation of her late niece.
