Kembi Gitura Family Wife and Children

Kembi Gitura is married with three grown up children. However he was embroiled in a legal battle from a paternity case filed in the court against him by one Roy Kiarie who wanted to be accepted as one of Kembi’s sons.

Roy had requested for a DNA test to be done to ascertain that Kembi was indeed his biological father. Justice David Majanja dismissed the application in 2013. Kembi filed an objection to Roy Kiarie’s constitutional application seeking orders to compel the senator to accept him as his son.

Kembi argued that Roy was an adult, 41 years as at 2013, and had his own life to live.

Kiarie alleges that the Senator had a relationship with his mother Rachel Njeri Kiarie resulting in his birth.
