A man in Nairobi shocked the court after he sued his ex-girlfriend for allegedly denying him access to her during her pregnancy journey.
While appearing before High Court Judge Mugure Thande, the man identified as EMM argued that his ex-lover identified as JNC denied him access to her during her pregnancy journey despite being aware that he was desirous of siring children.
"The respondent has consistently rejected to associate me or let me in with the pregnancy journey despite having full knowledge that I have been desirous of having children and becoming a father and a present one at that," he stated as quoted by a local publication.
He additionally argued that the lady was hindering him from fulfilling his responsibilities to his twins pleading with the court to compel her to grant him access to be present during her (respondent) pregnancy journey until she delivers.
EMM further informed the court that he had parted ways with the respondent in February 2022, after an intimate relationship that lasted two years.
"I have responsibilities over the unborn children which responsibilities the respondent is blocking me from doing. I therefore pray that this court compels the respondent to allow me to be present during the pregnancy journey and be present after the expected twin babies have been born," EMM stated.
"I am constantly stressed and worried about the safety and future of my babies as I have been left in the dark on the pregnancy journey, despite the full knowledge that I have been desirous of having children," EMM added.
The latest development astonished the judge who expressed that it was an uncommon thing since most men opted to flee whenever their partners were pregnant.
"The petitioner/applicant is aware that life begins at conception as per provisions of Article 26 of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 and that he is keen to be present in the lives of his unborn children," Justice Thande stated.
