Swaleh Mdoe did not use a condom when he waylaid Ms Fauzia Ahmed sometime in 2004. Naturally, Ms Fauzia got pregnant and luckily gave birth. Swaleh, amazingly, Â disappeared! Now, a court has ordered that his salary be attached to raise the child now aged 10.
Not that the two consenting adults met in 2004, nay, they had cohabited since 2001, that’s a year after the world ushered in the new millennium, 21st century.
But Swaleh not only denies siring the baby, he also denies ever meeting the woman sexually. He says he’s a married man with a wife and children of his own. Â The woman reveals Swaleh earns Ksh 750,000 monthly, again, Swaleh denies. The woman demands only Ksh 21,000, again, Swaleh isn’t acting gentlemanly. Sad.
“I have never cohabited with the plaintiff, as she has failed to provide any details of where we lived. I’m a married man with a wife and children, and it would not have been possible to cohabit with someone else,” says Mdoe.
The children’s court has issued orders directing Mdoe to appear in court and explain why he should not be jailed for failing to obey court orders. It turns he had been ordered to pay the child’s upkeep but ignored.
The woman claims they cohabited with him (Mdoe) since 2001 and got a baby girl in 2004 as a result of the union.
The children’s court directed the two parties in the case to appear in court on May 17.
