There was drama in Roysambu estate, Nairobi county when three children who were set to be handed over to their mother protested the court's directive insisting they wanted to stay with their father.
The mother, Grace Wachira, had moved to court seeking custody of the children after she allegedly left her marriage in 2018.
Speaking to the media on Sunday, May 24, the unidentified father said he was left with his youngest daughter who was breastfeeding at that time and had to single-handedly take care of her.
"The last born was left when she was suckling. I have raised them single-handedly and now she has a court order, she was supposed to take them but they have refused and created a scene," said the man.
He said Grace had moved to court seeking custody of her children and won.
She was set to pick them up but the minors refused insisting they wanted to stay with their father.
"We want our dad, she is not our mum, she is called Grace Wachira. You work with her at Inooro. We don't even want to listen to her," said the eldest son.
The distressed man noted he tried to call his estranged wife for a dialogue in order to iron out issues with the children but his efforts fell on deaf ears.
"I don't have an option, I'll just go back to court and tell the magistrate how they reacted. I tried to plead with her and wrote her messages and told her to come to rebond with the kids but she refused," said the father.
In another interesting report, an overjoyed COVID-19 patient has released a video as she arrived at an isolation centre which turned out to be a beautiful facility.
In the footage sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Instagram handle of Facts and Truths, the excited lady took viewers through a tour, showing off her nicely-laid bed, air-conditioner, dining table and others.
Although the specific isolation centre and the name of the lady are all not disclosed, it is clear from the video that the COVID-19 patients in isolation are well taken care of.
