A man in Mombasa have been rewarded with GHC37,491 in a bitter sweet paternity court case …
The man named as Mr SVK together with his wife were happily together when they had their child in October 2015.
He was the happiest man in the world until another man showed up to file a suit against him demanding to be recognized as the father of his daughter.
Mr SVK counter sued the biological father of his daughter who wanted his name scrapped off the birth certificate and replaced with his.
A DNA test was conducted in South Africa which proved indeed his wife was unfaithful and he wasn’t the biological father of his five years old daughter.
“For all his troubles, the first respondent (Mr SVK) is entitled to compensation for the expenses he incurred in caring for the mother and the baby,” the Judge said.
The biological father is expected to pay the 37K as compensation to Mr SVK and out of that 16,000 is for haven paid for his wife’s pregnancy and delivery cost.
