Kenyan Man Sues Son For Upkeep Money

Kenyan Man Sues Son For Upkeep Money

A Kenyan man has sued his adult son demanding 20 per cent of his salary to go towards his monthly upkeep.

Gideon Kisira Cherowo, 73, says he sold his land and most of his assets to pay for his son’s education up to the university level.

He says the son – now aged 48 – does not support him.

The father who has four sons says only one is employed at the Kenya Airports Authority.

Mr Cherowo’s family lives in a mud house in his village in western Kenya.

He alleges that his son has not come home for the last 17 years and the family has asked for his help in vain.

Mr Cherowo told the court that he could not afford the services of a lawyer and brought his youngest son as a witness.

The son told the court that his eldest brother had abandoned the family after landing a job in the capital Nairobi.

The sincerity of a *husband* is known during the sickness of his wife. That of a *wife* is known during the financial difficulty of the husband. True love of *children* is known during the old age of the parents.
The true nature of *siblings* is known during distribution of inheritance. The *sincerity* of friends is known during hard times. The *true relatives* are known when one is far from his country, lonely or sick.
*True love* is known when there is no means of benefit & a *true believer* is known during times of hardship. *In all, life is the teacher itself*. May we grow in wisdom, understanding and patience. Shalom
