Drama in court as two men fight over young girl’s paternity


Mombasa,KENYA:Two men appeared in a Mombasa court claiming they are the biological father of a 16 year old girl accusing the mother of  allegedly changing the details of her birth certificate.

The mother Moureen Atieno, 32, was charged in a Mombasa court with false procurement of two birth certificates in 2000 and 2014.

The document showed the girl was born on 4th September, 2001 and 23rd November, 2002 respectively.

The woman is alleged to have procured two birth certificates of the girl using the names of two different fathers.

Her first husband Alfred Otieno told the court that he married Moureen in 2000 and was blessed with a daughter and even procured a birth certificate for her in 2001.

He also told the court that they separated in 2013 over domestic issues.

Moureen was later married to another man, Charles Odero who changed the details of the birth certificate to indicate him as the biological father of the now 16 year old girl.

The two birth certificate used in court as evidence had different dates of birth and surnames of the child.

Both the fathers are claiming they sired the 16 year old girl.

However, the woman insisted that the second husband is the biological father of her daughter.

Court will rule on 27 June.
