Raila family tussle: Court orders DNA tests to verify paternity of twins

Share this:
A judge has ordered for a DNA test to be conducted on twins allegedly sired by the son of ODM leader Raila Odinga’s son Fidel Castro Odinga to confirm their paternity.

Justice Aggrey Muchelule further directed the family members to cooperate during the extraction of blood samples among other requirements. The parties, including Fidel’s widow Lwam Getachew Bekele, his mother Ida Odinga and sister Winnie were asked to decide where the tests will be conducted.

And although the family wanted the media barred from covering the proceedings, arguing that it was an intrusion to privacy, Justice Muchelule said the matter was brought to an open court and the media was free to report so long as the minors are not mentioned.
