For the longest time now, we have been made to believe that Kenyan politicians are some of the wealthiest people in the world.
With that said, countless people have lived all their lives believing that politicians’ kid are living life on the fast lane and enjoying the same with a big spoon.
However, the aforementioned was recently watered down by Ms Yvonne Anono Omanzi, who is the daughter to Mining, Blue Economy and Maritime Affairs CS Salim Mvurya.
This is after Ms Yvonne dragged her father, Salim Mvurya to court over negligence.
YEIYO.com has learnt Ms Yvonne Anono Omanzi had earlier moved to court and filed a lawsuit against his father, accusing him of neglect.
According to court documents, Ms Yvonne had moved to court to seek assistance in pushing her father Salim Mvurya to take care of her needs, being one of his biological and recognised child.
Ms Yvonne, in her lawsuit reiterated that she works as a waiter in Kakamega county and survives on a KSh 4,500 salary despite her father being a man of means owing to the fact that he is an afluent politician.
Following Ms Yvonne’s lawsuit, Salim Mvurya, who is the former Kwale County Governor humbly approached the High Court in Kakamega and sought for a mediator to help him resolve the case filed by his daughter amicably.
In his application, CS Salim Mvurya expressed his willingness to support Ms Yvonne despite the fact that she is over 18 (an adult) and is really not entitled to parental financial aid from him.
CS Salim Mvurya, through his lawyer, Mr Peter Wanyama, noted that;
“Parental financial responsibility typically concludes at the age of 18, whereas she is 29. Nevertheless, the applicant (Mvurya) does not oppose extending assistance to the respondent (Omanzi) as he is driven by his moral compassion rather than an obligation rooted in legality.”
Cabinet Secretary Salim Mvurya, through his lawyer insisted that his daughter Ms Yvonne decided to take legal action without first engaging him in a dialogue with discuss her concerns and reach a long lasting solution.
Ms Yvonne defended her lawsuit by arguinh that her father, Salim Mvurya is attempting to evade the main issue and that the case may collapse if it is thrown out of the court.
According to Ms Yvonne, her dad, CS Salim Mvurya only responded to her after she initiated legal proceedings.
“It was not until I brought the matter to court that he decided that he was ready for mediation. When my father became the CS, I solicited bus fare and went to his office to seek help from him. Upon introducing myself, I was informed that stern instructions had been issued by Mvurya declaring me a person non-granta.” Ms Yvonne disclosed.
Ms Yvonne further claimed that she was escorted out of her father’s office by his security and instructed not to return when she tried to seek dialogue.
