It’s only in Kenya where you can easily become an overnight celebrity just by being an MCA, and it comes with all sorts of labels all thanks to the kind of controversies that they attract.
On MCA is on the spotlight after he was accused by his former house help for impregnating her.
The lady by the name Jennifer Mueni claims that Mutha Ward, Kitui MCA, Anthony John has promised to educate her when she was working as the family’s house help, but he ended up impregnating her and turned her into his second wife.
According to Mueni’s mother, the first term Wiper MCA took her daughter in June last year after convincing her that his family would live with her in Kitui town.
“We agreed that instead of paying her, he would enroll her in college where she would take a hairdressing course which was always her wish.” She is quoted by the Nairobian.
But that was not to be the case with Mueni who despite doing her job diligently, she ended up being a victim of the father of two who dimmed her dreams.
“At one time I came from taking his children to school and served him tea. He declined the tea and took my hand and herded me to his bedroom. He threatened to kick me out if I told his wife. When I asked about going back to school, he told me to relax.” Narrated Mueni.
When Mueni’s mother learned her daughter was pregnant with the MCA’s baby, she ordered her to return home. She then summoned Mr. John but when he refused to show up that’s when she reported the matter at Mutomo Police Station.
He would later accept responsibility by sending elders to her home to negotiate over the issue promising that he would take care of the baby as well as pay Mueni’s school fees through a verbal agreement.
However, Mueni’s mother wanted assurances that he would honor his word by appending his signature to his agreement.
