Former Vitimbi actress-cum-politician Nyasuguta born Eunice Wambui is going through a rough time raising her 8-year-old son after her baby daddy David Otieno ‘resisted her’.
According to Nyasuguta, she and Otieno, an employee of a Dubai Government agency, dated for 15 years and their relationship was sealed with a baby.
Well, Nyasuguta claims that Otieno has absconded parental responsibilities for two months now after “the opposition coalition, NASA appeared to suggest that its male supporters’boycott’ women from certain communities.”
“Every time I call and ask him for child maintenance, he tells me: ‘Our leaders in Nasa told us to boycott women from certain communities, one of them being yours. That is exactly what I am doing,'” said Nyasuguta.
“I have come to terms with the fact that we can no longer be together as lovers. But, he should be there for his son, just as he used to be there for him until two months ago.”
The mother of one described her baby daddy as a good man and blames politics for separating them
“I really loved Otieno! When we were dating, he was a good man; unmatched in several aspects. That explains why I named my son after him. However, our political differences have made me see the other side of him that I did not know about. He says he is Nasa damu, and would do everything that the Party wants him to do as a supporter.”
Nyasuguta also revealed that, when she was running for Embakasi South parliamentary seat on a Jubilee ticket in the August elections, Otieno threatened to stop supporting their son if she didn’t back out of the race but unfortunately, she lost in the nominations stage.
“When I was running for Embakasi South Jubilee ticket in the April 2017 Party primaries, he told me to back out of the race, failure to which, he’d stop giving me child support money. I disobeyed his call, and since then, things have never been the same. He stopped paying for our son’s school fees, meals in school and much more two months ago. He told me: ‘I won’t associate with you if you continue supporting a political party which is opposing Nasa.”
The ‘yellow-yellow’ veteran actress cannot take care of her child alone and further claims that several women, whose baby daddies are NASA supporters, have also absconded responsibilities and she is calling upon the opposition leaders to do something.
“I am not in this mess alone. Other women have called me on phone, while others have interacted with me on a personal level, saying their baby daddies, who are Nasa supporters, have left them since Nasa called for boycott of products, which the coalition alleges are manufactured by firms friendly to Jubilee. Sadly, one Nasa MP even encouraged his supporters to use and abandon women from certain communities. It is a big shame!”
Nyasuguta, who still doesn’t know why Otieno has neglected his son despite being well off, said that she is contemplating dragging him to court.
“He is well off, very well off. I fail to understand why he has chosen to neglect parental responsibilities, knowing very well that my son attends an expensive academy. I will drag him to court because if I don’t, he won’t send me money anytime soon, given the political stand-off in the country currently.”
