70 percent of the men who dare go for DNA tests find to their utter shock that they are raising other people’s children.

According to Kinyanjui Murigi, an expert with a DNA-testing firm in Nairobi, men are increasingly becoming suspicious, especially if they find that their children do not take after them or share even a single attribute.

“Seven out of 10 men who come to our facility confirm their worst fears – the children were fathered by someone else. Recently, we have been getting so many clients here in Nairobi.

“Very few men who bring their children to our firm. Most of them come with nails, hair, or something the child uses regularly,” he said.

Murigi noted that the men seeking their services explain that they are usually pushed by a strong feeling that they could be unknowingly raising a stranger’s child.

He revealed that some women, particularly those who had a liaison with more than one man before pregnancy were also seeking to know who the fathers are.

Marriage therapist Ann Wamuratha explained that a number of reasons were making married women have children away from their spouses.

 

“We have are a generation of women who are generally naughty, and who started their sex life at an earlier age. Others fall into traps of rich men – knowingly or unknowingly. But remember even after having kids with outsiders, women are secretive beings and they can do anything and you will never realise you are raising another man’s child,” she said.

A couple of women, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that many times they were tempted to look for men with desirable characteristics such as height, skin colour and well-built bodies for them to have cute babies.
