The grandson of former President Daniel Moi Collins Toroitich has been accused of neglecting his two children, aged 11 and nine. The information was provided by his children's mother, Ms Gladys Jeruto Tagi. Tagi alleges that Toroitich abandoned the children and absconded from his parental responsibilities.

"I am currently unable to provide for the children alone as the needs are so many and would need to be assisted"" she stated in the suit filed in March in Nakuru.

Suit papers indicate Toroitich married the Baringo-based politician in 2008, but they later separated in 2012, with Toroitich allegedly leaving all responsibilities to Ms Tagi. In her court application, Tagi claims Toroitich has never taken responsibility for the children despite being a well-off businessman.

The mother of two further told Principal Magistrate Benjamin Limo she has tried everything possible to reach out to Toroitich to support his children, but he has been unresponsive. She is claiming that the businessman has blocked her phone number.

Tagi is currently seeking Ksh 1 million per month to cater for food, rent, education, entertainment, and maintenance.

Collins Toroitich is the son of former President DanielMoi'ss eldest son, the late Jonathan Toroitich.
