• However, the woman wants fresh DNA conducted on the child and Ole Kina saying she is 100% sure that he is the father of her baby.
• The court ordered a DNA test to be conducted at the government chemist on April 1 this year and the results produced in court on May 4 revealed that Ole Kina was not the father of her son.
A woman who claims Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina fathered her two-year-old son now wants fresh DNA carried out after the previous one turned out negative.
The court ordered a DNA test at the government chemist on April 1 this year and the results produced in court on May 4 revealed that Ole Kina was not the father of her son.
However, the woman wants fresh DNA conducted on the child and Ole Kina at three different facilities, saying she is sure that he is the father of her baby.
In a new application through Lawyer Danstan Omari, the woman says the negative results are not true because she is convinced that Ole Kina is the father.
“The applicant has reasonable grounds to believe that the results by the government analyst at the government chemist are questionable or skeptical and not a true reflection of the paternity of the minor” reads court papers.
She says she is convinced by her maternal instincts which is further persuaded by the romantic relationship between her and the senator that he is the biological father of the minor.
In her case filed last year in November, the woman claimed she met the senator in September 2019 and soon after they were in an intimate relationship for a substantive period of time.
She wants the court to order alternative substitute DNA testing at three other centres namely Lancet Laboratories, KEMRI and Pathway.
She argues that it is likely that due Ole Kina’s affluent status and his influence, there is reasonable apprehension that the impugned result by the government analyst at the government chemist is inaccurate and erroneous.
She has further told the court that she is willing, ready and undertakes to meet the costs of the three DNA testing at the three facilities.
But if the results come out positive, she wants the court to order Ledama to bear the costs incurred by her for the DNA testing.
She has also urged the order to warn Ole Kina not to interfere with the three tests.
“The court be pleased to make orders cautioning Ledama from in any way using his influence or status to interfere with the results of the testing at the three DNA centres namely Lancet Laboratories, KEMRI and Pathway” reads court papers.
It is also her argument that apart from interference with the result, she also believes that maybe an error occurred that’s why she wants the paternity test carried out at three different centres.
